Dalmore

Translation: Great Valley
Region: (Northern) Highlands


How the deer came to whiskey.

On the bottles of the Dalmore, the head of a mighty twelve-pointers is clearly visible. This not only serves decorative purposes, but rather refers to the honorable history of Mackenzies. In 1263, a member of the Clan Mackenzie rescued King Alexander III. in front of a rushing stag. With a single arrow he killed the animal that threatened to impale the king. Out of gratitude, he allowed the Mackenzies to wear a deer's head with the motto "Cuidich 'n Righ" (Gaelic for: "Help the King") in the Clan Armor. And since the Mackenzies conducted the Dalmore Distillery for many decades, each bottle still graces the head of the Zwölfender.

A little history

The distillery on the shores of Cromarty Firth was founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson. At least in all likelihood, it's not clear.
It is clear that from 1867, the brothers Charles, Andrew and Alexander Mackenzie led the distillery and in 1891 also became owners. The Mackenzies were one of the most respected families in the area. Your friends also included Charles Mackay and James Whyte, who earned great services in the whiskey world. Her company Whyte & Mackay has long been the largest buyer of the Dalmore Malts and later became a co-owner.
During the First World War, the Royal Navy used Dalmore to make mines. Part of the distillery was damaged by an explosion during the withdrawal. Only in 1922 (after extensive renovation and a long dispute) began the whiskey production again.
In 1960, the newly founded Dalmore-Whyte & Mackay Ltd owned the distillery. In 1966, the number of stills increased from four to eight.
In 1990, Whyte & Mackay was bought by American Brands, who changed their name to JBB in 1996. Since 2002, however, the company has operated under the old name Whyte & Mackay. Since 2007 Whyte & Mackay belongs to United Spirits
In 2004, opened a new Visitor Center, which was again modernized in 2012 and significantly expanded.

What do I actually have in the glass?

The Dalmore enjoys the highest regard among whiskey connoisseurs (see also the quote from Jim Murray in the paragraph "The one dram for the island"). The malt is very rich and elegant, with fine sherry sweetness and a slight smoking sound.

3 reasons to love Dalmore

1) Because the Malt is an all-rounder.
2) Because not only deers combine strength and elegance.
3) Because Dalmore still looks so heartwarmingly rural.

The one drama for the lonely island

Renowned whiskey author Jim Murray once wrote, "If you see 12-year-old Dalmore anywhere - buy two bottles." We do not want to contradict this.
