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.
Dalmore changed hands and owners countless times throughout the years, with Clan Mackenzie lasting the longest - for almost a century - and from which the distillery got its signature twelve-progned stag that is 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 – to Australia, specifically.
Dalmore Vintage 2000 is aged for 9 years in ex-Bourbon casks before additional 15-month ageing in Spanish Olorosso Sherry Casks. It's bottled at 46% ABV.
