Dalwhinnie Distillery stands in the Cairngorm National Park at the heart of the Scottish Highlands in the village of Dalwhinnie. From this remote but accessible location comes our Dalwhinnie 15 year old single malt scotch whisky, it is also known as the ‘gentle spirit’. We invite you to visit us for a distillery tour and see how we make our single malt whisky. At the end of the tour enjoy a taste of Single malt whisky paired with specially selected handmade chocolate.
Our Dalwhinnie 15 year old is a Highland malt whisky but some have argued that it should be called Speyside malt because our water source is a tributary of the river Spey the great whisky river. We are often called the highest distillery in Scotland and at 1164 feet above sea level we must be one of the highest distilleries. We don’t worry these debates and concentrate on making great single malt whisky.
If you don’t have time for a tour you can come for a whisky tasting. We have paired great single malts like Dalwhinnie, Glenkinchie, Cragganmore, Talisker, Oban and Lagavulin with specially selected handmade chocolates. We also have a selection of Dalwhinnie whisky tastings, with a selection of our own Dalwhinnie whiskies, matched with specially selected handmade chocolates. Our whisky and chocolate tastings are a truly unique experience.
By road we are 55 miles south of Inverness on the A9; 124 miles north of Edinburgh on the A9; 45 miles east of Fort William on the A86 and A82; and 58 miles north of Perth on the A9. Just off the A9 and A86. Dalwhinnie’s central location (close the geographic centre of Scotland) makes it a great base for exploring other Single Malt distilleries as well as many of the Classic Malt Distillery. Dalwhinnie is only a short drive away from Newtonmore, Kingussie, Aviemore, the House of Bruar, Pitlochry, Loch Ness and Blair Athol. Check out Stagecoach and Citylink to travel by bus.
