Interesting collection of souvenirs, didn't try the tour as the distillery no longer operates

The staff were friendly and very informative, had a great half hour with the but, as the distillery has been closed for a long time, didn't bother with the artificial tour.

This was such a pleasant surprise and so much fun! I am so, so glad we came here and I highly recommend this to EVERYONE!! The gentlemen who worked there were so nice and kind. This is a closed distillery and after having toured an open one and this closed one, I liked this much better! You get to look... More

Not a working distillery but a visitor attraction run by Historic Scotland which is a good place to visit for all the family.

We selected this distillery among several others constituting the Malt Whisky Trail in order to be able to come close to all the equipment and go through the whole process. Was it a good idea? I really cannot tell, as we have no benchmark. Having said that, I would consider visiting at least one of the Malt Whisky Trail being... More

This distillery is not in operation. So if you are interested in just the buildings interesting but otherwise not really!

This was the surprise hit of a recent castle-themed tour of Scotland - I only called in because I was passing nearby, but it was utterly absorbing and beautifully presented. You go round with an audio guide which explains the distilling process well and introduces you to some wonderful words. You can get right up to and peer into the... More

Located just a few miles off the A96 in Forres, this Historic Scotland property provides an excellent audio tour of a defunct distillery that was never "modernized." If you're interested in getting right up against the distilling equipment, this is the place to visit!

Distillery tours are interesting to a few of us and almost boring to our partners. Dallas Dhu is small, self paced and never crowded. It has a nice gift shop and nice people in it. If your traveling companion is not too keen on a distillery tour, this is a great alternative. It lets you discover the processes in a... More

Great old distillery. You can walk around this distillery at your own pace with a hand held guide. Photos are allowed. Well presented as it would have been when it was in production and explains complete processes used. Free dram of whiskey at end of tour and gift shop for all your sourveniers and whiskey purchases. Good alround distillery.

To begin with it is a very well maintained Distillery. Staff was very helping, cheerful and joyful. We took the tour of the Distillery looking and learning how the Whisky is produced. Also got to know about the history behind it through a short film and some free Whisky tasting. Gift shop is also very decent. Try the Rum Cake,... More
