Single Malt Scotch Whisky Tamdhu, production of which began in 1986, received its name after the river Tamdy with which water enters at the distillery.
Tamdy distillery was founded in 1897 near the town of Nokandu on the banks of the River Spey. The site was chosen because of the convenience of the location near the railway and the availability of excellent water of the famous "Valley of the smugglers." The distillery is famous for its own excellent malt for the manufacture of which uses so-called "boxes of Saladin." In the hot air coming into these malthouse, blended smoke burned the local peat. Tamdhu - Speyside distillery last, manufactures its own malt in this way. In 1972, the distillery capacity has been increased from two to four stills, and later in 1975 were added two more. In June 2011 the distillery Tamdy acquired by Ian Macleod Distillers, which produces its own brands of blended whiskey, such as Lang's, King Robert II, Isle of Skye, Marshal, Langs, The Six Isles, Hedges & Butler, Dunfife and Glenshire and many others.
Ian Macleod Distillers Ltd - one of the largest and most widely respected independent family-owned companies in the alcohol industry, founded in 1936 by Leonard Russell, who is the great-grandfather of today's general director Ian Macleod. The founder of the company attached great importance to independence, and without favoring any of whiskey producers, he bought only the products that meet its standards and requirements of its customers. Success strengthened his conviction and within a few years it had approved for the company an enviable reputation in the Scotch whiskey industry. Ian Macleod produces and sells more than 15 million bottles of alcohol annually.
Offering a wide range of different varieties of whiskey (along with gin, rum, vodka and liqueurs premium), the company decided to bring the ranks of whiskey connoisseurs of the younger generation, offering a new variety of single malt in a bright, modern style. In 2006 the company introduced whiskey Smokehead. The idea for a new product appeared as managing director Leonard Russell visited Islay Whisky Festival, where he noticed among the fans of the local strong smoky whiskey many young people. Thus, it was decided to buy whiskey from Islay plants and package them for the modern consumer. Based on the idea and the name Smokehead (from Eng. Smoky - smoky), the development of packaging and label the product Russell instructed the design agency Navyblue. Rejecting the traditional whiskey packaging with heraldic emblems and seals, the designers have created a unique brand that simultaneously breaks the mold of whiskey packaging, preserving its heritage and origins. Embossed tin tube demonstrates many embossed on it adjectives that describe the characteristics of the beverage. Words such as "strong", "strong" and "energetic" characterize complex and strong aromas of Islay whiskeys, with its peat, sweet, smoky and spicy taste. Home label uniquely positioned on the rear side of the glass bottle so that the descriptive word tezhe viewed through drink. On the traditions and history Smoukheda reminds font in the form of traditional wooden beams, reminiscent of stamps on the barrels of whiskey, and color of the text on the bottle
