The distillery was founded by Tamdhu Distillery Company, a consortium of whisky blenders with William Grant as the main promoter. The famous distillery designer Charles Doig was the architect. ‘It is perhaps the most efficient and designed distillery of its era,’ wrote Alfred Barnard in 1898.
Only two year after the founding Tamdhu Distillery Company had financial problems and was sold to Highland Distillers.
Times of closings and reopenings followed: Tamdhu was distillery mothballed between 1911 and 1913, between 1928 and 1948
In 1950 the floor maltings is replaced by Saladin boxes when the distillery is rebuilt.
The Tamdhu distillery in 1972 increased the number of stills from two to four, in 1975 two stills augmented the previous four, and a year later the Tamdhu distillery released a 8 years single malt.
The Tamdhu distillery was closed again in 2009, in 2011 the Edrington Group sells the distillery to Ian Macleod Distillers, while in 2012 the production resumed.
In 2015 is released the Tamdhu Batch Strength.
