Famed for its single malt whisky, the Dalmore Distillery was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, and is located on the northern shores of the Cromarty Firth, overlooking the Black Isle, in Alness in the Scottish Highlands. A successful entrepreneur, Matheson identified Alness as an ideal place for a distillery, with fertile land to grow golden barley, pure water from Loch Morie and being at sea level so the salt air provides the ideal conditions for maturation.
The proud heritage of Dalmore dates way back to 1263 when King Alexander III was saved by the Cheif of the Clan Mackenzie and awarded with the right to use the 12-pointed Royal stag emblem on their coat of arms. Clan descendants became owners of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, and this very same icon is now emblazoned proudly on each bottle of Dalmore whisky.
The history of their craft is as long and proud as Dalmore’s heritage, a tradition that is upheld by Master Distiller Richard Paterson, who personally hand selects the exceptional casks in which their whisky is matured and where Dalmore’s celebrated flavour is finessed.
The character profile of this celebrated Scotch whisky is packed full of rich and nutty flavours, ranging from rich chocolate, toffee and Christmas cake to sweet orange, dried fruits and almonds, it’s an easy drinker that is sure to quickly become one of your favourites.
