Dalwhinnie distillery, situated in the Highland village of Dalwhinnie in Scotland, produces Single Malt Scotch Whisky. Dalwhinnie refers to its own whisky as a Highland Whisky, as the Speyside region is wholly within the Highlands and so Speyside distilleries can be legally labelled as either Highland or Speyside under SWA regulations. A number of other Speyside distilleries also label their whisky Highland such as Macallan, Glenfarclas and Aberlour . Dalwhinnie is owned by Diageo.
The site for the distillery was chosen for its access to clear spring water from Lochan-Doire-Uaine and abundant peat from the surrounding bogs. Set in splendid mountain scenery, Dalwhinnie is the highest distillery in Scotland with a visitors centre at 1,154 ft above sea level. The highest distillery is actually Braeval, in Glenlivet at 1,163 ft .
