The Dalmore unveils 60 year old single malt whisky to celebrate 180 years of creating masterpieces


The Dalmore, a renowned distillery that has been creating masterpiece whiskies for 180 years has unveiled a rare, limited edition 60 year old single malt whisky to celebrate its exceptional craftsmanship and dedication.

In honour of The Dalmore's rich history, Master Distiller Richard Paterson created The Dalmore 60 Year Old by reuniting two extremely rare ex-sherry casks from six decades ago. Filled with spirit first distilled on 7th June 1951, these two ex-sherry casks have been slowly maturing and building layers of depth and complexity, with the whisky in each cask evolving in an entirely different direction for sixty years.

Richard Paterson noted: “Over the course of the past 180 years, The Dalmore has constantly strived for perfection, setting the standards for many other whisky makers today. The Dalmore 60 Year Old is a fitting tribute to the masterful talents of our distillers past and present, who have all helped to create an incredible body of work. For me personally, nurturing and caring for these two casks has been a true labour of love. The reunion of the two spirits has produced an unforgettable whisky that is truly greater than the sum of its parts.”

For 180 years, The Dalmore distillery has continually pushed the boundaries of whisky making. Led by the Mackenzie clan for three generations, The Dalmore established longstanding, deep-rooted alliances with suppliers to source exquisite casks, which today remain an integral part of the quality and depth of The Dalmore’s character. Now led by Richard Paterson (since 1970), The Dalmore has strengthened its reputation for curating and reuniting exceptional casks, most recently including the one-of-a-kind L’Anima, which was created in partnership with the famed Italian chef Massimo Bottura and was sold at Sotheby’s for £108,900.

The Dalmore Single Malt Whisky is available worldwide in the finest outlets, from Harrods of London, Galleries La Fayette of Paris, Beverly Wilshire of Los Angeles, and Shangri-La of Shanghai. For those that enjoy fine travel, The Dalmore is also available at 40,000 feet with Emirates First Class, and onboard Queen Mary II of Cunard.
