Discover the Dailuaine Range

"Dailuaine whisky is not just an after-dinner dram, it’s an after-dinner mood in a liquid. Thick, rich yet pleasantly, palate-cleansingly sweet, and often described as 'sherryish'."


Founded in 1853 by farmer William MacKenzie, the distillery has been rebuilt several times, just like its contemporaries along the Spey valley. In 1889, it was the first distillery to be fitted with architect Charles Doig’s pagoda roof. It was also once a main stop on the railway that ran across the region, delivering people, barley and coal to the network of distillers. The building remained as a farm until 1950, when it was rebuilt and electricity finally installed.
