Dalwhinnie Distillery

Dalwhinnie Distillery – Some might argue that Dalwhinnie should be called a Speyside malt because its water source flows into the Spey just a bit further north.  But looking at a map, it’s an ideal part of a whisky exploration of Perthshire, and in fact, lies only a few miles outside the “Big County’s” boundaries.

Open 7 days a week all year round – but it is always best to phone or email prior to travelling!
