Dallas Dhu Distillery - 11

The third stage of the whisky making process is that of distillation. The brew is distilled to extract the alcoholic spirit.

The wash is distilled first in the wash still, and then again, for the sake of purity, in the spirit still, to extract just the right strength of spirit for the whisky - nothing too light, nothing too heavy.

The still house is very much the spiritual heart of the distillery, for it is here that the weak brew from the wash backs was transformed into fiery spirit!
