More from Dalmore

The Dalmore distillery is a prestigious Scotch whisky distillery located in the Highlands of Scotland. Founded in 1839, the distillery has a rich history.  The distillery is situated on the banks of the Cromarty Firth, which provides an abundant supply of fresh water for whisky production.

The Dalmore is particularly famous for its distinctive 12-pointed stag emblem, which is featured on every bottle of its whisky. The emblem represents the legend of the first chief of the Mackenzie clan, who saved King Alexander III of Scotland from a charging stag and was granted the right to use the animal as the clan’s emblem.

The distillery uses a unique combination of stills, including a rare flat-top still, which produces a spirit with a particularly rich and fruity character. The whisky is matured in a range of casks, including ex-bourbon, sherry, and port casks, resulting in a diverse range of flavors and aromas.

Visitors to the distillery can take a tour of the facilities and learn about the history and production methods of the Dalmore whisky. The distillery also offers exclusive experiences, such as private tastings and whisky blending sessions.
