George Copper found the Glencadam distillery in the year 1825 and it changed ownership many times in the 19th century. In July of 1954, Harry Southwell and Andrew Stevenson sold the distillery to Hiram Walker and in the year 1987, Allied Lyons bought the distillery from him. Lyons mothballed the distillery and sold it to Angus Dundee.
The distillery was closed for three years before it was sold, but in spite of being closed for such a long time, the distillery was kept in immaculate condition by Lyons. This helped Dundee to reopen the distillery in the short span of just two months. Angus Dundee bought Glendam after he bought the Tomintoul distillery.
The distillery lies half a mile from the River Esk and gets its supply of water from Loch Lee at the headwaters of the river. The water from the river travels thirty miles to reach the distillery. The water from the river is very soft and offers a single malt whiskey that is creamy. For that reason, the distillery supplied whisky for Stewart's Cream of the Barley blend before it was sold by Lyons.
Today, the distillery is running at full capacity. The two stills in the distillery offer about 1.4 million liters of whisky per year with eleven warehouses. These warehouses offer plenty of space for the whisky to be matured on site.
