A New Chapter For The Dalmore’s Highland Home

| May 20, 2022

Nearly 200 years since its founding, The Dalmore Single Malt Scotch is seeing high demand for its whisky, all while the distillery itself has retained an intimate scale, nestled next to North Scotland’s waterway, The Cromarty Firth.

A statement from the distiller shines light on a new capital investment program that proposes a new whisky-making facility and visitor experience, as they retain the distinctive character of the distillery.

A new pagoda, sat atop The Old Dalmore Kiln, will mark the heart of the “reimagined distillery.” The existing estate will be repurposed to create something iconic for the distillery.

The vision behind the renewal is said by the brand to honor the whisky making at The Dalmore, which is known for its collection of stills, and curation of rare and aged casks.

In 2021, The Dalmore’s parent group, Whyte and Mackay, published The Green Print, their sustainability strategy; the objective to become Net Zero by 2040.

The investment sets out to create a new whisky making and production facility, built to exacting sustainability standards, and transitioning the site to a green energy solution.

At The Dalmore, whisky making is led by Master Whisky Maker Gregg Glass, alongside renowned Master Distiller Richard Paterson, who recently celebrated his sixth decade in the industry.
