Scotland: Whisky & Distilleries
The distillery as been designed by the architect Charles Doig, who
is probably the inventor of the pagoda roofs. The building has been
financed by the blender Wright & Greig.
The distillery has been purchased by Benmore Distilleries Ltd. The company joined the D.C.L. (Distillers Company Ltd.) in 1929.
A fire destroyed the still room in 1939 and the distillery remained closed until 1947.
The Dallas Dhu distillery closed definitively in 1988 when it as been transformed in a museum. It belongs to Historic Scotland.
Everything is still in working order. It is one of the most pedagogic distilleries to visit, even if the smell of malt has gone since a while.
The single malt used to enter in the composition of the blend called "Roderick Dhu".
The Dallas Dhu is an excellent example of conservation of the industrial heritage in Scotland. The distillery remains in perfect conservation state, and the visit of this museum is really a must in the Speyside region.
The visit happens with earphones, explaining how a distillery works, in your own language.
A very pedagogic visit.
Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
