Overview

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 Picturesque Dallas Dhu originally made malt whisky for the popular Roderick Dhu blend.

What to see and do

  • Enjoy the free audio guide and audio-visual presentation
  • 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
  • Take our fun fact-finding quiz while exploring the historic distillery. Available on site
