Dallas Dhu distillery was built 6 miles from Dallas by Wright & Greig Ltd, a Glasgow based blending company. The distillery changed hands twice before it was taken over by the DCL in 1929. In April 1939 the distillery was damaged by fire. The distillery remained closed during the second World War. In 1950 the distillery was connected to the national grid. Up until 1971 the wash still rummager was powered by a water wheel. Dallas Dhu stopped production in 1983. In 1988 it was bought by Scotland’s Historic Buildings and Monuments Directorate and is now a museum. Today it is part of Speyside’s Whisky trail. The distillery has always been seen as a time capsule for the distilling industry as it did not have many modernising changes made to it.
