Dunnage: Dunnage warehouses, also know as “traditional warehouse, are the most traditional type of warehouse, being with thick stone (or brick and in some cases in cement) walls and a slate roof. Casks are usually stacked 3 levels high. It is generally accepted that Dunnage warehouses offer the best maturation. They provide the best air circulation with the most constant temperature and moisture level, and the lowest evaporation rate. However, they are labour intensive.
Dramming: Tradition in the Scotch distilleries until the 1980s when the employees received some new make spirits at regular time (3-4 times a day). Employees received additional drams when they did difficult work. This practice was stopped due to Health & Safety regulations.
