Dalwhinnie Distillery is the highest distillery in all of Scotland, it is 355 meters above sea level and the average temperature in that region is 6.6 degrees Celsius. The name of the distillery, Dalwhinnie, means “meeting place” in Gaelic.
There is a Highland Railway station close to the distillery. The distillery also has access to clean mountain water, which significantly influenced the fact that the founder of the distillery decided to build it in this place in 1897, i.e. at the end of Victorian times.
The Dalwhinnie Distillery changed hands several times until 1926, until it finally became the property of the Distillers Company, which is now part of Diageo.
The main product of the distillery is a 15-year-old single malt whisky, aged in an American oak barrel. This whisky has a delicate, mild aroma, enriched with sweetness and an accent of creme brulee.
