Dalwhinnie

Dalwhinnie

Dalwhinnie er en skotsk single malt whisky, der har taget navn fra en nærtliggende by. I 1897 blev et destilleri ved navn Strathspey grundlagt på stedet, men efter en konkurs blev det solgt og fik sit nuværende navn. Destilleriet ligger knap 370 meter over havet og er således Skotlands højest beliggende. Den største del af produktionen anvendes i den blendede whisky, Black & White, således at kun ca. 10 % går til single malt i eget navn.
