Notes from Ald Goonsy’s
William Mackenzie, a farmer from the Speyside town of Carron, built the Dailuaine distillery in 1852. Dailuaine derives from the Gaelic ‘An dail uaine’ meaning ‘green valley’. Considering the distillery’s idyllic placement among the gentle green undulations of the Spey valley, it’s easy to understand how it earned the name.
After William passed away in 1865, his widow Jane decided to lease the distillery to James Fleming, a banker from nearby Aberlour. In 1879, Jane’s son Thomas and James Fleming formed “Mackenzie & Company”. Between 1884 and 1887 they rebuilt and expanded the distillery, making Dailuaine one of the largest distilleries in the Highlands at that time. In 1889 Dailuane became the very first distillery in Scotland to be fitted with a “pagoda” roof, designed by Charles Doig.
Many other distilleries followed suit, including Aberlour, Ardbeg and Benriach. This architectural gem was tragically lost in 1917 after a fire raged through the buildings. The distillery was forced to close to rebuilt, but opened again in 1920. The second expansion in the distillery’s history came four decades later, in 1960, when the distillery expanded from four to six stills.
Just like many other distilleries, Dailuaine became part of industry giant Diageo when United Distillers (UD, a division of the Guinness Group) and International Distillers & Vintners (IDV, a division of Grand Metropolitan) merged in 1998.
