Introducing The Dalmore Distillery Exclusives

Vintage 2003 And 2006 

London, September 2020: For the first time ever, The Dalmore Highland Single Malt is releasing two extremely rare limited edition Distillery Exclusives, outside of the distillery, in partnership with Harrods. To date, the Single Malt maker has released prized Scotch whiskies once a year direct from its distillery to those in the know. However, in response to the shifting landscape, The Dalmore will join forces with the leading luxury emporium to bring not one, but two new cask releases, usually reserved only for those who visit The Dalmore in Scotland, to audiences worldwide. But you’ll have to act fast – only 100 bottles of the 2003 Vintage and 450 of the 2006 Vintage will be made available and collectors are sure to be eager to acquire the latest Distillery Exclusives from the Highland distillery.

A sweet richness is to be discovered in both Vintages, due to the finishing in magnificent Premier Grand Cru Bordeaux wine barriques for the 2003 Vintage, and the finest Marsala Casks for the 2006 Vintage. From the enticing aromas to the delicious toffee and coffee finishes, these whiskies speak to all the senses and are an exceptional gift from The Dalmore distillery.
