Lots by The Dalmore at Sotheby's
About The Dalmore
Heading up Whyte & Mackay’s portfolio, Dalmore is one of the world’s most renowned whiskies. With the 12 pointed Stag of Clan Mackenzie defining the brand, Dalmore has seen itself become a favourite with collectors. Bottles such as the 62 year old, Dalmore Quintessence and the Constellation Series have all found favour with critics and collectors alike. Founded in 1839 by Alexander Matheson and sitting just North of Inverness across the Firths of Moray and Cromarty, Dalmore boasts a beautiful view over the water. The distillery was family owned until the 1960s when it was procured by Whyte & Mackay. Since joining the portfolio, Dalmore’s focus has well and truly shifted from providing blending stock to becoming their flagship single malt distillery, producing 4.2 million litres per annum on just 4 stills. Famed for its sherry and wine cask finishes, Dalmore’s distillate holds wood maturation incredibly well, and its ability to age for long periods is what has made it so desirable for collectors the world over. The Dalmore L’Anima 49 year old, sold in early 2019, was testament to the distillery’s reputation and collectability, with a single bottle fetching £108,900 at Sotheby’s auction.
