The Dalwhinnie Distillery‘s bold white-washed walls are usually a stark contrast to the grey clouds of the rainy Scottish Highlands, making it stand out along the A889. Heading north on our road trip through Cairngorm National Park, the Dalwhinnie was along the way so we stopped for a private tour (lucky us) through one of Scotland’s highest distilleries.
Photography inside the distillery is not allowed so our photos are limited to the store, which contains historical information, and to the tasting room. We imagine the secret to making their famous whisky is well guarded… Perhaps this is the reason there are only 4 employees at the distillery (aside from the store)?
We’re not connoisseurs of whisky (or any type of alcohol) –a whiff of it actually makes me gag, but the distillery tour itself was interesting and we really enjoyed ourselves. I did not gag once. Husband enjoyed his 3 tastings while I declined but I did gobble up the delicious whisky fudge.
