The Dalmore honours Singapore's 50th year of independence with one of a kind release :: 15th July, 2015

The Dalmore honours Singapore's 50th year of independence with one of a kind release :: 15th July, 2015

Home to some of Scotland’s most precious and rare whisky stocks, The Dalmore distillery has created a one of a kind exclusive bottle in celebration of Singapore’s Golden Jubilee, which will be showcased at RWS Hotel Michael, Singapore.

The whisky, named The Dalmore Affinity, has been meticulously crafted and nurtured by Master Distiller Richard Paterson and the small but highly skilled team at The Dalmore distillery in Scotland for the last 50 years.  

Always striving for perfection, Paterson works with some of the world’s finest wineries and bodegas to hand-select each cask which matures The Dalmore.  The Dalmore Affinity has been matured in American white oak bourbon casks for 48 years before being finessed in exclusive Apostoles 30 year old Matusalem oloroso sherry butts from the Gonzalez Byass bodega in Spain for a further 2 years and 6 months.   

Respecting this passage of time takes patience and artistry but the wait yields exceptional results.  It is only after 50 long years of maturation has Richard finally declared that the casks have gifted the spirit with the perfect depth of flavours which include caramel, cherries and chocolate ganache.   

This whisky is so precious, that only one bottle has been created.   Priced S$105,645, this exceptional release will be showcased at Hotel Michael in Singapore from the 26th July 2015. 

Richard Paterson, Master Distiller commented: “When creating The Dalmore Affinity, we wanted to celebrate the pioneering spirit and bravery of the Singaporean people who came together to develop an independent nation based on five noble values of democracy, peace, progress, justice and equality.   

We wanted to mark this Golden Jubilee with a whisky that is truly befitting of this occasion, which is why we have released this very rare, one of a kind whisky, sourced from the deepest darkest corners of our warehouses in Scotland.  As beautiful as it is rare, this expression is an exceptional whisky that we believe richly honours this extremely prestigious occasion.” 

The Dalmore Affinity is bottled in an elegant hand-crafted crystal decanter, complete with a solid silver stag created by leading Scottish silversmiths Hamilton & Inches, holders of the Royal Warrant.  This ‘12-point Royal Stag’ emblem dates back to 1263 when the Chief of the Clan Mackenzie bravely saved King Alexander III of Scotland from the fury of a charging stag.  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 distillery, they brought with them their cherished emblem and the iconic stag has proudly adorned every bottle since 1867. 

The beautiful crystal decanter is enclosed in a wooden presentation case which has been hand-crafted by the expert craftsmen at LINLEY, who meticulously designed and constructed it with the fastidious care and attention only someone of their calibre can provide. 

The Dalmore Affinity will be showcased at RWS Hotel Michael, Singapore for three weeks starting from Sunday 26th July 2015.
