Dallas Dhu Distillery History.
Wright & Greig Ltd from Glasgow founded the Dallas Dhu Distillery in 1899. Designed by renowned architect Charles Doig .
The word ‘Dallas’ is from the Gaelic word ‘dalais’, which means Valley or water. The word ‘Dhu’ means black and is from the Gaelic word ‘Dhub’. Whether Dhu is a reference to dark water or a dark valley is undecided.
The distillery briefly known as “Dallasmore” and the now dismantled Forres to Aviemore Railway served it. The output from the distillery contributed to the blends of Roderick Dhu and Benmore.
