Experience the heritage, craft and taste of The Dalmore at Whisky & Spirits Live on from 31 October – 2 November 2018 at the Sandton Convention Centre!
The Dalmore’s heritage dates back to 1263. It was in this year that Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, saved King Alexander III from the fury of a charging stag. In recognition of this noble act the King granted the Mackenzie Clan the right to use the 12 pointed Royal stag emblem on their coat of arms.
When descendants of the Clan became owners of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, the Royal Stag became the recognisable icon that proudly adorns each bottle of The Dalmore today; an emblem which encapsulates a rich past whilst also embodying a promise that The Dalmore will remain at the pinnacle
The Dalmore house style derives from a close and trusted relationship that was forged with sherry house Gonzalez Byass over 100 years ago. The rare 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry casks from the renowned bodega are exclusive to The Dalmore. These casks enrich the signature chocolate and orange character of our whisky with rich and nutty flavours.
At The Dalmore, we continue an age old heritage that treasures the sanctity of the cask. Our precious spirit is finessed in exceptional casks, hand selected by Master Distiller Richard Paterson and sourced from the world’s finest bodegas and exclusive wineries.
To create a more complex character, some of our whiskies benefit from an extra flourish in additional casks. Every cask that we source is of impeccable quality and hand-selected to produce our renowned Single Malt Whisky.
A pioneer in the art of cask curation, Master Distiller, Richard Paterson has been the creative force behind The Dalmore for nearly five decades.
Inspired by the vision of The Dalmore’s founder, Sir Alexander Matheson, and the achievements of the Mackenzie family who came before him – Richard is admired across the globe for his passion and innovative flair.
Throughout these 50 years, Richard Paterson has been on a mission to push the boundaries of what is possible in whisky production and the art of cask curation. His unparalleled expertise and intimate knowledge of rare and precious casks have produced truly iconic, ground-breaking expressions from The Dalmore, that set the standard in Single Malt Whisky.
