Established in the 1890s, Dalwhinnie was taken over in 1905 by an American distiller who was looking for Malts to produce blended whiskies for the US market. The American adventure continued until prohibition in the 1920s. Dalwhinnie returned to the Scottish fold. Dalwhinnie eventually became part of another Whisky purveyor James Buchanan, best known for Black & White. Only 10% of the production is bottled and distributed as Single Malt, the remainder being a significant component of blends such as Black & White.
