Visit Dalwhinnie Distillery Whisky and Chocolate, a match made in heaven....

Visit Dalwhinnie Distillery Whisky and Chocolate, a match made in heaven. Our tours and tastings offer something a little different - a range of Classic Single Malts paired with specially selected luxury highland chocolates. Come and elevate your senses in the highest distillery in the land. Visit Scotland 5 Star Visitor Attraction. We are the highest distillery in the land and weather conditions can be severe. It is always best during winter months to phone in advance to see if we are open to visitors. We do advise that you book your tour in advance. 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 Dalwhinnie 15 year old single malt scotch whisky. Know as the gentle spirit. We invite you to visit us for a distillery tour and see how we make our single malt whisky. At the end of the tour enjoy a taste of Single malt whisky paired with specially selected handmade chocolate. Dalwhinnie 15 year old is a Highland malt whisky but some have argued that it should be called Speyside malt because our water source is a tributary of the river Spey the great whisky river. We are sometimes called the highest distillery in Scotland and at 1164 feet above sea level we must be one of the highest distilleries. We don't worry these debates and concentrate on making great single malt whisky. When you come to Dalwhinnie distillery you can see us making single malt Scotch whisky or you can come for a whisky tasting. We have paired great single malts like Dalwhinnie, Glenkinchie, Cragganmore, Talisker, Oban and Lagavulin with specially selected handmade chocolates. Why not come and try our adult hot chocolate! Our whisky and chocolate tastings are a truly unique experience. 1 hour south of Inverness on the A9, 2 hours north of Edinburgh on the A9 and 1 hour east of Fort William on the A86 and A82. Just of the A9 and A86. Dalwhinnie's central location (close the geographic centre of Scotland) makes it a great base for exploring other single Malt distilleries like Ben Nevis, Tomatin, Glenfiddich, Glen Livet, Macallan, Glenmorangie as well as many of the Classic Malt Distillery. Dalwhinnie is only a short drive away from Newtonmore, Kingussie, Aviemore, Inverness, the House of Bruar, Pitlochry, Loch Ness, Fort William and Blair Athol

This distillery is beautiful, in excellent condition and using some traditional methods not seen in many other distilleries. The tour was very informative and relaxed. We had the chocolate and whisky tasting after the tour and it was absolutely fantastic. Staff were extremely welcoming, overall a fantastic day out.

The staff were very pleasant and informative. The building and shop are beautiful. The whiskey assortment is incredible although much of it was out of price range. The tour was just the right amount of time with a tasting of a 'wee dram' (or two) with chocolate pairings. You get to keeping the tasting glass after the tour. Excellent value... More

We were very lucky to have a tour just the 3 of us with Willie. (I remembered your name :-)) The place is just like a time warp of old and new. Obviously some things have to move with the time but traditions have been kept where possible Willie had so much time to explain and answer questions, I think... More

We got here too late for the tour but managed to speak to the team in the shop. They have a huge amount of interesting information about the distillery and its history. Not being a whiskey drinker I had very little knowledge about whiskey or how it is made and distilled so they led me down the line of their... More

Visited three times, it's simply impossible to drive by without stopping for a dram and some chocolates ;-). The tour is of high quality and the tasting with local excellent chocolate and fine Dalwhinnie whiskies is simply perfect!

Tour was really good, lots of great information and well presented by our tour guide Peter. I liked the small piece of chocolate you got, nice touch. I done the Dewar's tour in Aberfeldy the day after and this place was no where near as complete but good all the same. Mobile reception in the area was non-existent and as... More

Peter our tour guide was informative. Tour was about 40 mins. Samples of whisky we had were excellent to be able to taste the differences. Great views on the drive there.
