MM Distillery profile:
Dallas Dhu was the last Scotch whisky distillery that was built in the 19th century. It was also one of the very first distilleries with the 'traditional' pagoda roof (the Dailuaine distillery was first with that feature).

However, the origins of the roof are Scottish. ... More on Malt Madness.
