The Stag, the King and the Hero.

Alexander Matheson, a trader who made his fortune in illegal opium imports from the Far East, founded the Dalmore Distillery in 1839. It is located on the northern shores of the Firth of Cromarty, deep in the Scottish highlands. The Dalmore changed owners many times throughout the years, with Clan Mackenzie being in control the longest. Clan Mackenzie is to thank for Dalmore's  signature twelve-progned stag included on all Dalmore bottles. The story of the stag goes back to 1263, when the head of clan Mackenzie heroically saved Scottish King Alexander the Third, with a single arrow to end the Stag's attempt. This distillery boasts with producing one of the most expensive Whiskies in the World, and for being the first to ever export Malt Whisky.

This Highland Malt is rich and interesting, with a refined bitterness of dark chocolate and hot coffee. Matured in American white oak casks, it also has a subtle spiciness and a vanilla sweetness that cannot be ignored. The flavours come together to create an excellent dram.
