A Capital do Malt Whisky da Escócia: Dufftown
Dufftown is unique in the world. There is nowhere else, even in Scotland, with such a concentration of distilleries:
Dufftown stands on seven stills”
The name of Dufftown has become synonymous with Scotch Whisky, its famous “seven stills” having risen to nine since the rhyme was composed. It has been said that Dufftown raises more capital for the Government per head of population than any other place in the UK.
Great News – we now have new premises for the Whisky Museum!
Peat Cutting Tools
The Whisky Museum has been closed now for over a year, due to our lease running out and it being too expensive to meet a much higher rent. However, we have now aquired the Hub, who have ceased to be, and Big Lottery have signed it over to Dufftown 2000 Ltd., to run as a Whisky & Heritage Museum.
The Dufftown Whisky Museum provides a unique opportunity to discover the secrets of whisky making in days gone. It also gives a fascinating insight into the lives and times of whisky smugglers.
Many of the exhibits were provided by local distillers as well as HM Custom and Excise. These include illicit stills as well as other tools and equipment used for whisky manufacture in times gone
