Dalwhinnie held the title of Scotland's highest distillery for 6 years between 2002 and 2008 but was robbed of it's title when Braeval reopened. Nevertheless it remains Scotland's coldest distillery with a yearly average temperature of just 6°C.
Dalwhinnie is located 55 miles south of Inverness on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park in the highland but according to some sources it is a Speyside distillery. The Dalwhinnie distillery is one of the few Scotch whisky distilleries where worm tubs are still in use.
Even more unique: the worm tubs at Dalwhinnie are made from wood (they usually are made of metal).
