Dallas Dhu Distillery
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.
