From this Distillery
Established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, Dalmore Distillery sits on the banks of the Cromarty Firth overlooking the rich and fertile Black Isle, the "big meadowland", from which it takes its name.
The distillery was bought by the Mackenzie family in 1886, and the 'twelve pointer stag' was introduced from their clan crest - a symbol that still adorns each and every bottle of Dalmore to this day.
Pure, clean water taken from the local River Alness is used to create The Dalmore in the time-honoured way, and the small band of stillmen who run the distillery, originate from a handful of local families, who work together in creating the finest of Scotch Malt Whiskies. This experience, craft and pride in their work, ensures that Dalmore's unique character and quality never falters - it remains the classic Highland malt.
