It all started in Aberdeen in 1842
The firm of William Cadenhead Limited, Wine and Spirit Mechants, was founded in 1842 and was in the ownership of the same family until it was taken over by the well known Campbeltown firm of J&A Mitchell & Co. Ltd who own Springbank Distillery. The Premises were in Netherkirkgate in Aberdeen and although the street numbers were changed from time to time the premises were same and indeed were almost unaltered during their 130 years trading in Aberdeen.
Spirits are selected when they are remarkable, not marketable.
No sales target mean they aged their whiskies to perfection.
