About The Dalmore
The Dalmore puts a lot of importance on the casks it uses to mature the spirit. These are hand selected by Master Distiller, Richard Paterson, looking at casks from across the world. Some of The Dalmore’s spirits are undergo one type of cask maturation, and are then added to other casks, creating a more complex character to the tasting profile. The personal curation of casks alongside a heritage of expertise through generations of distillers help to create a world-renowned whisky.
The Dalmore has had a relationship with González Byass sherry house for over 100 years, and has exclusive use of rare casks which previously matured 30-year-old Matusalem Oloroso sherry.
Between 1917 to 1920 production stopped as the Royal Navy used The Dalmore warehouses to produce landmines, however they were destroyed in 1920 by an explosion and fire, with whisky production only resuming in 1922.
Master Distiller Richard Paterson has been with The Dalmore distillery for over 50 years.
The roots of the brand date back to 1263 when Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, saved King Alexander III from a charging stag. As a reward for saving the King’s life, the Mackenzie Clan were granted permission by the Scottish King to use the 12-pointed Royal stag emblem on their coat of arms. In 1867, when descendants of the Clan became owners of The Dalmore distillery, the Royal Stag became the icon of the brand and adorns each bottle to this day.
