About the distillery

"The Dalmore" Distillery is located in Alness, which is 20 miles North of Inverness. It sits on the banks of the Cromarty Firth overlooking the Black Isle, the "big meadowland", from which it takes its name.

Other Information

In 1263, Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, took a bold decision to stand up and be counted, and felled a charging stag which attacked King Alexander III of Scotland.  In return for saving his life, the grateful King gifted the 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem to the Mackenzie Clan as a reward.

The Dalmore King Alexander III was crafted to honour the act of saving Scotland's king in 1263.  To make this expression, Master Distiller Richard Paterson selected a range of six specially selected casks housing spirit of perfect maturity - from French wine casks, Madeira drums, sherry butts, Marsala barrels, port pipes and bourbon barrels from Kentucky.

Both bottle and presentation box are in excellent condition.
