As the highest distillery in Scotland, Dalwhinnie produces single-malt whiskies known for its clean, heather-honey flavours that reflect its Highland mountain environment. Initially named as Strathspey, the distillery was established in 1897 where the railway line and major roads meet and facilitate whisky trade activities. It was later renamed to Dalwhinnie which means ‘the meeting place’ in Gaelic, to reference the location of the junction. Its single malt scotch whisky was classified as a Highland Malt, and in 1989 the Dalwhinnie 15-year-old became one of the Six Classic Malts of Scotland.
The award-winning Dalwhinnie 15-year-old is the brand’s most renowned expression, its bright gold colour fragrant with soft heather, peat and medium-bodied. Dalwhinnie also offers other variants to suit more taste palates, such as the Dalwhinnie Winter’s Gold, distilled in the cold Scottish inhibited region where the average temperature is 6˚C.
