Dailuaine Scotch whisky distillery built in 1851 by William Mackenzie, lies in a hollow just south of Aberlour with river meadows all around.
The name Dailuaine meaning “green valley” is a good description of its surroundings. The water is taken from the Bailliemullich Burn which flows through the distillery from Ben Rinnes and into the River Spey.
In 1898 under the ownership of William’s son Thomas, Dailuaine was amalgamated with Talisker to form the Dailuaine-Talisker Distilleries Co Ltd.
After Thomas’ death Dailuaine and its sister distilleries were bought by a consortium consisting of DCL, Dewar’s, Buchanan’s and Johnnie Walker.
Dailuaine soon became a major part of the Johnnie Walker blend.
