Set in beautiful mountain scenery, Dalwhinnie is Scotland’s highest and coldest distillery situated in the Highland village of Dalwhinnie in Scotland. The name Dalwhinnie is derived from Gaelic word ‘Dail Chuinnidh’, which means ‘meeting place’ referring to the meeting of ancient cattle drovers’ who trecked through the Grampian mountains. The site for the distillery was chosen for its access to clear spring water from Lochan-Doire-Uaine and abundant peat from the surrounding bogs.
The distillery was almost unknown prior to its inclusion in Diageo’s Classic Malts series in 1987 and the majority of the spirit produced there still goes into the Buchanan’s and Black and White blends despite it being in the top 15 best-selling malts worldwide.
