Overview

Step back in time to see and hear how whisky was made in the 1900s – and then sample a dram for yourself. Picturesque Dallas Dhu originally made malt whisky for the popular Roderick Dhu blend.

What to see and do

  • Enjoy the free audio guide, audio-visual presentation and sample dram
  • Visit the malt barn – a long, two-storey warehouse where barley was turned into malt
  • See the kiln where the barley was dried over a lightly-peated fire
  • Marvel at the mash tun – the great vat where the malted barley and water were mixed to create a sugary ‘wort’
  • Count the six great washbacks where yeast fermented the sugary wort into a weak alcohol called ‘wash’
  • Step inside the still house, the spiritual heart of the distillery, where the ‘wash’ was transformed into fiery spirit
  • Enter the bonded warehouses where the finished product was left to mature for at least three years
