Since 1839, Dalmore has distinguished itself in the whisky world with a spirit of bravery and excellence, challenging convention to create unique and adventurous single malts. The history of the Dalmore brand can be traced back to 1263, when the leader of Clan Mackenzie bravely rescued King Alexander III of Scotland. In 1867, the Mackenzie family started the business history of the Dalmore Distillery. Since then, every bottle of Dalmore Single Malt Scotch Whisky has proudly carried the "Royal Emblem with 12 Antlers" as a brand totem that will be inherited forever. The tradition of glory is not only presented in the 12 golden forks of the deer head, but this spirit is engraved in the soul of the Dalmore Winery. With courageous and innovative fantasies, we started the Scotch whisky industry's pursuit of vintage whisky, and insisted on the control of old wine inventory with an extraordinary vision. To this day, Dalmore continues to release extremely rare and ultra-aged Scotch whisky with its precious old wines that dwarf the crowd, making the Dalmore distillery's "Old Wine Bank" an immortal legend.
