As you make your way down the narrow bumpy farm lane to Dà Mhìle Distillery, you will enter straight onto our farm yard. Firstly you will see the Caws Teifi Cheese dairy building on your right and further down you will find the distillery. There is usually plenty of parking available. Distillery tours will start with an introduction and will outline some of the history of Dà Mhìle, the brand, and then lead on to the founding of Dà Mhìle Distillery. You will discuss some of the ingredients that go in to the different products and be taken around the distillery, showing you parts of the process from brewing, through to distilling, bottling, labelling and the warehouse where we age the whisky in various oak casks.
Once you're here, nothing is too much trouble, all questions will be answered to the best of our abilities and you will be as close to the equipment as the distillers.
"John’s stories from his years as an organic farmer as well as his ventures into the world of whisky are what make the tour - he is a fascinating individual that you could easily listen to for hours. He gave us a complete history of how he began as an organic farmer, how he approached Springbank distillery in 1992 for the first organic whisky of the modern era and how he later commissioned a few barrels from Loch Lomond in 2000."
Once you've been through distillery, you'll be guided upstairs to the tasting gallery.
Created sustainably from the wood harvested from the farm (trees fall every year in the typical Welsh winters), our gallery was hand built by a team of locals and help from our neighbours, not a single crane was used to put the many oak beams into the roof.
"The highlight of this tour is the tasting room, located on the top floor of the building, with the top of the still column protruding into the room from below. In the center is a rustic solid wood table with each of the spirits that Da Mhile has produced, from the original organic Springbank commission, Loch Lomond malt and grain releases, through to the gin, seaweed gin and orange liqueur."
The gallery has a viewing platform where you can see the top of our state-of-the art still, you can look down at the process while we're distilling.
If you're expecting a commercial tour with videos, PowerPoint presentations and a structured format you'll be disappointed. However, if you're looking for a personal touch from the distillers or even the owners, you'll enjoy every minute.
