Dallas Dhu is typical of the many small distilleries built around 1900 to help quench the growing thirst for whisky, Scotland’s national drink. Dallas Dhu remains a well-preserved time capsule of the distiller’s art.
Dallas Dhu Distillery filled its first barrel on 3 June 1899 and its last on 16 March 1983. In between, it had a chequered existence.
The distillery closed during the First World War but was afterwards sold to J.P. O’Brien & Co. Ltd. When the Glasgow company went bust in 1921, Dallas Dhu was bought by Benmore Distillery. The new owners invested heavily in the site, but the Great Depression forced closure in the early 1930s. In April 1939, soon after reopening, the distillery was badly damaged by fire. Production began again in 1947, but finally ended in 1983.
Step back in time to see and hear how whisky was made in the 1900s – and then sample a dram for yourself.
