    Dallas Dhu Distillery(22 Sep 2007)


    Forresの中心部から南へ約2kmにあるDallas Dhu蒸留所は1898年、企業家のAlexander EdwardによってDallas Mhor蒸留所としてForresからGrantown on Speyへの鉄道の側に建設された。しかし彼は操業開始直前の1899年にグラスゴーのブレンド会社、Wright & Greig社に売却。名前を"Dallas Dhu"に変更し操業が開始された。
    しかしいくつかのブームにのって建てられた蒸留所と同じ様に何度かオーナーが変わり、最終的に1929年にDCLに買収された。その間、操業は続けられていたが1930年から6年間操業が停止された。
    その後、Dallas Dhu蒸留所は1939年に起きた火災で施設が被害を受け、加えて第二次世界大戦のために操業が再開されたのは1947年となった。

    Dallas Dhu Distillery, which stands on the site about 2km south from Forres Town Centre, was established in 1898 by Alexander Edward who was an entrepreneur beside a railroad from Forres to Grantown on Spey as Dallas Mhor Distillery. However, he sold the distillery to blending company of Glasgow, Wright & Greig, Ltd before the distillery went into production in 1899. They changed the distillery name to Dallas Dhu and started whisky production.
    However, The owner of distillery was changed in the same way as some of distilleries which were built during the Whisky Boom in the 19th. Finally, Dallas Dhu Distillery was acquired by DCL(later United Distillers) in 1929. The whisky production had been continued since 1899, but the distillery was mothballed from 1930 to 1936.
    Dallas Dhu Distillery was damaged with much of its equipment by a fire, and World War 2 broke out. So, reopening of the distillery was delayed until 1947.

    The Way to Dallas Dhu Distillery(22 Sep 2007)


    Dallas Dhu蒸留所は地図上ではForresの中心部から南へ約2kmの所にある。これぐらいは徒歩圏内。Benromach蒸留所を後にして町の風景を楽しみながら歩く。
    やがて町並みは途切れ牧草地の丘を進む道路は上り坂。重たいカメラバッグに加えてBenromach蒸留所で買ったウィスキー・・・スコットランドの旅はいつもこのパターン。
    ようやく丘を登り切って下りにさしかかった時、モルトキルンと古い造りの煙突が見えてきた。もう少しで到着だ。
    でも同じ道を帰るのだから、また上り坂が・・・いや今は考えるのをやめよう。Dallas Dhu蒸留所の見学を楽しもう。

    Dallas Dhu Distillery was about 2km south from Forres town centre on the map. It was within walking distance for me. After I left Benromach Distillery, I walked to Dallas Dhu Distillery and enjoyed the scenery of town.
    After a while, the scenery was changed and the road which passed through the hill of meadows was an uphill slope. And I was holding a heavy camera bag and a bottle of whisky which I bought at Benromach Distillery.
    I often faced this situation during Scotland tour, it was a very hard!
    When I finished climbing the hill and approached the down slope, a malt kiln and an old style chimney came in sight. It would be arrive shortly.
    However, I had to come back through the same way, uphill slope again…
    No, let’s stop thinking now, enjoy the distillery tour at Dallas Dhu Distillery!
