The Dalmore Launches New Expressions Exclusively Into Travel Retail :: 7th June, 2016

The Dalmore Launches New Expressions Exclusively Into Travel Retail :: 7th June, 2016

Exclusive Highland Single Malt Whisky makers, The Dalmore, are launching a new collection exclusively for travel retail.  Premiering on the 7th June in Lagardère Travel retail, Buy Paris Duty Free, Paris Charles de Gaulle, the collection will be available in all European Travel Retail stores, from Summer 2016. 

Three new expressions; Regalis, Luceo and Dominium, will join Valour to become The Dalmore Fortuna Meritas Collection.   Inspired by the distillery’s belief that ‘Fortune Favours the Brave’, each expression is a tribute to the brand’s history; celebrating the brave act of the Chief of the Clan Mackenzie who saved the life of King Alexander III, and the rewards which he received in return.   

The cask selection also pays homage to the Mackenzie family, who took custodianship of The Dalmore distillery in 1867.  Andrew and Charles Mackenzie travelled in search of only the finest casks to mature their whisky, unprecedented at the time, and forged a relationship with the renowned Gonzalez Byass bodgea in Jerez, a partnership which still flourishes today. 

Over 100 years later, these hand-selected casks are influential in shaping the spirit of The Dalmore and the three new travel retail expressions have each been maturing in different  sherry woods to give them a bold, distinctive and unique flavour - The Dalmore Regalis is finished in Amoroso, The Dalmore Luceo in Apostoles, whilst  The Dalmore Dominium matures in Matusalem 30 years old sherry casks which are exclusively sourced by The Dalmore.    

Richard Paterson, The Dalmore Master Distiller commented: “I start the whisky making process with a vision of what style I would like each whisky to have.  The American White Oak in which we initially mature our whisky gives me a wonderful canvas from which to start each whisky’s creation.  The Dalmore is an exceptional spirit whose character shines through and develops to unrivalled levels when matured in the right casks – it is my job to ensure that I find the perfect cask for the whisky to excel. 

For this collection I looked to our long standing and unique partnership with Gonzalez Byass as this allowed me to draw from rare, rich and valuable sherry casks.  I was able to create a different and unique finish for each whisky, giving each of them a rich and complex flavour, but with their own nuances and individual flair.”

The Dalmore Valour

Valour means courage, and it is at the very heart of The Dalmore story.  In 1263, the Chief of the Clan Mackenzie bravely saved King Alexander III of Scotland from the fury of a charging stag.   The grateful King granted the Clan three rewards – the right to use the a 12-pointed Royal Stag in their coat of arms, the motto ‘Luceo Non Uro’ and the lands of Kintail.

The Dalmore Regalis

The name Regalis means royal, or regal, which is befitting to The Dalmore as the 12-pointed Royal Stag adorns every bottle.

In 1263 the Chief of the Clan Mackenzie bravely saved King Alexander III of Scotland from the fury of a charging stag and in recognition of this noble act the grateful King granted the Clan Mackenzie the right to use the emblem in their coat of arms.  When ancestors of the Clan took control of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, they took with them this striking icon which has since adorned each bottle of The Dalmore, symbolising its regal legacy.

The Dalmore Dominium
