The Dalmore  The Dalmore Distillery has been producing exceptional single malt whisky since 1839

The Dalmore’s Master Distiller Richard Paterson is relentless in his search for the finest casks in which to mature our unique new make spirit. The revered 25 year old for example is matured initially in American white oak, before moving to a mix of rare hand-sourced 25 year old sweet Palomino Fino sherry butts and 1980 first fill bourbon casks. These exceptional spirits are then expertly married together in bourbon barrels before being transferred for the final time into Tawny Port pipes from Portugal, for a totally unrivalled finish.

Richard Paterson is one of the worlds most distinguished and iconic whisky experts.
To honour his contribution to the world of whisky, The Dalmore have created the champagne-finished 50 years old. With a sweet and fruity aroma, a strong chocolate and coffee palate and finish of black morello cherries, crushed almonds and soft liquorice – the 50 is the epitome of artistry.

The artistry and craftsmanship that goes into each and every drop of The Dalmore is unrivalled. Our whisky is matured in the world’s finest casks, including American white oak ex-bourbon casks and exclusive aged sherry casks from Gonzalez Byass. These extraordinary wood finishes give The Dalmore a unique depth and complexity of character and flavour.

Introduced to celebrate Master Distiller Richard Paterson’s 50 years in the whisky business, The Dalmore 50 is matured in the finest champagne with Matusalem oloroso sherry and port casks.

"Tasting exquisite drams, such as The Dalmore Quintessence, is all about revelling in the wait. Take time to admire the golden tones, breathe in the superb mix of aromas and hold it long in the mouth. Only then will you truly understand the complexity of the whisky." - Richard Paterson, Master Distiller
