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.
