I have yet to view the inside of a distillery. On a trip to Scotland we took a train from Glasgow to Dalwhinnie. We walked from the train station to the distillery only to find that they were closed to visitors that day. This is something that never, I mean never, happens to us because my husband does his research well and double checks or triple checks things. But this time it happened. So I can not give you a first hand account of how they distill the Dalwhinnie Scotch. When we got back to the unattended station plenty of trains went by but we had to wait hours & hours for a train that actually stopped in Dalwhinnie and that would take us back to Glasgow. So there was a whole day shot. And it was a cold damp day in the Highlands waiting.
I know I took pictures that day but those files are not showing up so I’ll show you a living example of the symbol of another distilled beverage: A Beefeater at the Tower of London, the symbol of Beefeater Gin.
