Welcome to Dalwhinnie Distillery

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 liquid known as the gentle spirit.

Notice to visitors

From November 2018 to the end of March 2019 we are offering our standard tour completely FREE as part of our Winter Promotion *.  There will also be other special offers such as discounts on whisky in the shop and the Tasting tour at £12 instead of the usual £24!

Fuelled by both fire and ice, Dalwhinnie's signature Winter's Gold single malt is paired with the legendary House Stark for Game of Thrones' limited edition collection. Bottles available now at the distillery.

Take a peek at the ins and outs of our working distillery. From its unique high location to its Speyside malt.


Uncover the history behind the liquid.

Built in 1897 and currently the highest distillery in the country, Dalwhinnie – or “Plain of Meetings” in Gaelic – is named for its location at a junction of old drove roads, between two mountain ranges. Year after year it survives the coldest of conditions to produce smooth, golden heather honey-like spirit.
