    Dalwhinnie Single Malt Whisky

    At 1164 feet above sea level, Dalwhinnie was once the highest functioning distillery in Scotland (a title which now belongs to Braeval, following its re-opening in 2008). Set among the picturesque surroundings of Cairngorms National Park in the small Highland village of Dalwhinnie, the distillery was founded in 1897. The water which goes into their whisky is taken from the highest source of any malt – the 2000ft Lochan an Doire-Uaine set in the Drumochter Hills – and this contributes to the distinctive fresh character of Dalwhinnie.

    Dalwhinnie is a much loved distillery which has found consistent worldwide popularity since its inclusion in the successful Classic Malts range launched in 1998. However, its history has not been without difficulties; production at the distillery halted between 1934 and 1938 due to a fire which caused considerable damage and restrictions on barley supply during World War 2 meant the distillery did not function fully again until 1947. Since then it has thrived and the building underwent an extensive £3.2 million refurbishment in 1992, including the addition of a visitor centre. Today, a visit to Dalwhinnie is notable for their unusual tasting sessions which pair your dram with a range of specially chosen handmade chocolates.

    The majority of spirit produced at Dalwhinnie goes into Diageo blends, but single malt bottles have become more common thanks to the wide release of a popular 15 year old expression.
