Dallas Dhu Speyside Whisky Distillery
Dallas Dhu is located in Forres a beautiful and historic town in Speyside mapped by the romans over 2000 years ago. The land on which Dallas Dhu sits belonged to Alexander Edward, and was built in 1899 before being passed onto the makers of Roderick Dhu whisky. The distillery was well located in the primary whisky producing regions of Scotland with local barley, a water supply from the Altyre Burn and its own railway siding. Whisky production was on and off with wars the depression and a fire interrupting production.
Unfortunately Dallas Dhu distillery is no longer a functioning distillery closed in 1988 not long after its Forress counterpart Benromach suffered the same fate. However Dallas Dhu memory is maintained not just in the malt whisky which came from it but with the distillery building now housing a museum to Dallas Dhu. You can be shown around the museum by ex-employees and try the rare Dallas Dhu whiskies which will not be around forever. Dallas Dhu distillery (museum) is now regarded as a protected ancient monument. This place is a picture of 19th century whisky production and if you are visit one whisky museum distillery in Scotland visit this one. The Malt Mill, the Kiln, the malting floor, the barley-loft, through to the stillhouse and warehouses, a truly spell binding experience for the whisky lover.
Dallas Dhu single malt whisky is not easily available but Diageo released some during the ‘Rare Malt’ series in the 1990’s and a few independent bottlings are available.
Taste: Complex and sweet with explosions of citrus and strong aftertaste of barley.
