Ian Macleod Distillers wants to take Tamdhu into the export market

Ian Macleod Distillers is set to reopen Speyside's Tamdhu Distillery.

The family-owned company confirmed yesterday (2 April) that it will restart production at the distillery in 2013. Previous owners The Edrington Group mothballed the facility, which holds three wash stills and three spirit stills, in 2010.

Ian Macleod bought Tamdhu Distillery, which will be capable of producing around 4m litres of alcohol per year, from Edrington in June.

Glasgow design agency Good has been recruited to update the identity for the Tamdhu brand.

The company also said that it plans to push Tamdhu in export markets, although specific details were not released.

Ian Macleod also bought its Glengoyne distillery from Edrington, in 2003.
