Dalwhinnie’s distillery manager is pictured here in the still room. “I asked him which was his favourite part of the distillery and he said the still room,” says Hampden-White. He also points out that beyond the door in the background is a worm tub, which Dalwhinnie still uses to cool the fresh spirit from the still (like Cragganmore, Glenkinchie, Oban and Talisker).

As for Mackintosh’s character, Hampden-White says it was: “exactly as the image portrays; he was a charming, very nice guy.”

The distillery is located deep in the Highlands, and was established in 1897 by the Strathspey Distillery Co.
