Dallas Dhu Distillery

Region: Highlands
District: Speyside

Dallas Dhu was founded in 1899, and gets its name from the Gaelic term "Dalais Dubh" which means, "black water valley." It is now a museum and is under control of Scotland's Historic Buildings and Monument Directorate. It is a worthwhile stop for those on the way to visit nearby Dallas, Scotland, as it is an excellent example of a small, two-stilled Highland distillery at the beginning of the twentieth century. It was closed from mid 1939 until 1947 after a fire destroyed the stillhouse. It closed permanently (apparently) in 1983, and its license was cancelled in 1992. Its much sought-after single malt is still available from private bottlers, but the supplies are dwindling.
