Dalmunach opened in summer 2015 on the site of the mothballed Imperial Distillery at Carron. Remnants from the old distillery situated on the site from 1897-2012, were built into the new one with an architecturally impressive design, inspired by the shape of a sheaf of barley reflecting the core ingredient of Single Malt Whisky.
The new distillery cost £25 million. It is strikingly modern in design and operation, but sits well in the wooded site on the bank of the River Spey. It won the Royal Institute of British Architects Award for Scotland in 2015.
