The latest release from Dalmore, is said to showcase the timeless elegance that one has come to expect from the distillery which is renowned for maturing a collection of some of the world’s oldest and rarest whiskies.

The Dalmore 35 Year Old, comes bottled in a bespoke crystal decanter, which has been skilfully created by the French crystal house, Baccarat, The decanters have been blown by expert craftsmen, who must train for a minimum of 15 years before they are deemed to have fully mastered the challenging art of crystal making.

Commenting on the launch, Richard Paterson, Master Distiller at The Dalmore, who celebrates 50 years in the whisky industry this year, said: “You cannot rush the whisky, you must take time to ensure that you get the best possible results.  It took careful maturation in three different woods over a 35 year period to release the full potential of this whisky. Only after this long period of time did the whisky finally become everything I envisaged it could be. Only then was it finally time to release this truly captivating whisky from its slumber.”

The Dalmore 35 Year Old, will be available next month from select specialist retailers, for a RRP of £3,500.00.
