This month, we sample a Highland single malt whisky – the Dalwhinnie 15 year old.

Dalwhinnie Distillery stands in the Cairngorm National Park at the heart of the Scottish Highlands in the village of Dalwhinnie. From this remote but accessible location comes our liquid known as the gentle spirit.

Built in 1897 and currently the highest distillery in the country, Dalwhinnie – or “Plain of Meetings” in Gaelic – is named for its location at a junction of old drove roads, between two mountain ranges. Year after year it survives the coldest of conditions to produce smooth, golden heather honey-like spirit.

The Dalwhinney 15 year old is light with a fruity sweet aroma. An aromatic malt, very easy to drink.


Made in the highest and coldest working distillery in Scotland, with water from a loch at 2000 feet, Dalwhinnie whisky thrives on extreme conditions – creating a liquid as sweet and accessible as its highland home is remote.

Dalwhinnie 15 Year Old is a Highland Single Malt from the highest distillery and coldest in Scotland. Smooth, aromatic, heather and honey sweetness. Great chilled.
