Dailuaine distillery lies tucked between the foot of Ben Rinnes and the River Spey. The name is taken from the Gaelic ‘dail uaine’ meaning green valley, and it’s a title that sits well with the verdant, dew-fresh origins of this naturally fragrant Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
Dailuaine was founded in 1853 by farmer William MacKenzie, the distillery has been rebuilt several times, just like its contemporaries along the Spey valley. In 1889, it was the first distillery to be fitted with architect Charles Doig’s pagoda roof.
In 1884 saw the installation of Scotland’s first pagoda on a kiln whose pitch was deliberately steep to minimise the contact time between peat smoke and drying malt, one of the clearest indications of how the old ‘Strathspey’ style was changing.
At the end of the 19th century, Dailuaine was the largest single malt distillery in Speyside and also one of the most innovative in terms of design.
