Knowledge Bar

The first time you enter the stillhouse at Dalmore distillery, you will undoubtedly be surprised by the stills. The wash stills all have flat-tops, rather than the elegant curved "swan neck" normally seen where the neck of the still joins the lyne arm leading to the condenser.The spirit stills are even more unusual - with a "water jacket" wrapped around the neck of the still. This increases condensation within the neck of the still, creating more reflux and, so the theory goes, a more refined spirit character. Back to top
