The site for the distillery was chosen for its access to clear spring water from Lochan-Doire-Uaine and abundant peat from the surrounding bogs. Set in splendid mountain scenery, Dalwhinnie is the highest distillery in Scotland.
The name Dalwhinnie is derived from Gaelic word Dail Chuinnidh, which means meeting place, referring to the meeting of ancient cattle drovers' routes through the mountains.
A great malt that Jim Murray awarded 95 points in his Whisky Bible, the 15-year-old Dalwhinnie is excellent value for money. The flavors are simple, flawless and clean.
