Established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, this Northern Highlands distillery owns a very old still which neck is cooled by a water stream, which clears the distillate from its heaviest elements.


This might explain its ability to age for a long period (more than 50 years), even if a bottle of that age is extremely rare and pricey. The Dalmore is one of the rare distilleries that used to be managed by a woman, between 1860 and 1866. When the Mackenzie family bought the distillery in 1866, she brought with her the symbol of the clan – a stag head with twelve horns – meaning “royal”, labeled on each bottle released by the distillery. In  1960, the distillery merged with the Whyte & Mackay company, founded by Mackenzie relatives.

Colour: amber.

Nose: pleasant and rich, evocative of caramel shortbread, fresh grapes and citrus. Zesty orange appears on the mid-palate.

Palate: lush, flavours of chocolatey candied oranges with molasses and pinneaple. A splendid array of flavours from golden barley to nutmeg.

Finale: a forest fruit finish with a touch of warm coconut, figs, marzipan.
