Dallas Dhu Historic Distillery

The picturesque distillery of Dallas Dhu was built in 1898 to produce malt whisky for Glasgow firm Wright and Greig’s popular ‘Roderick Dhu’ blend.

Visitors to the unique time capsule of Dallas Dhu can see and hear how whisky was made – there is an audio-visual presentation and free audio guide – and sample a free dram.


  • The malt barn – the long, long two-storey warehouse where the chief raw material – barley – was turned into malt.
  • The kiln – where the barley was dried over a lightly-peated fire.
  • The mash house – dominated by the mash tun, a great cooking vat, where the malted barley and water mixed to create a sugary ‘wort’.
  • The tun room – housing the six great wash backs, where the yeast fermented the sugary wort into weak alcohol, called ‘wash’.
  • The still house – the spiritual heart of the distillery, where the weak ‘wash’ was transformed into fiery spirit.
  • The bonded warehouses – where the finished product was left to mature for at least three years.
