The Dalmore releases 2017 distillery bottling

Emperador has released a limited edition vintage bottling for its single malt Scotch whisky brand The Dalmore.

Available exclusively from the The Dalmore Distillery in the Scottish Highlands, The Distillery Exclusive Vintage 2000 combines the profile The Dalmore’s new make spirit with character of Californian Merlot.

Having matured in American White Oak ex-bourbon barrels, Vintage 2000 has been finished in Californian Merlot Barriques for five years before bottling.

Richard Paterson, master distiller comments: “The Dalmore Distillery, located on the picturesque shore of the Cromarty Firth in the Scottish Highlands, is my go-to place for inspiration and reflection. It is here that I first considered how best to combine one of my favourite red wines with the distillery’s deep and complex new make spirit.

“The Dalmore Distillery Exclusive Vintage 2000 is the result of these efforts, offering a harmonious balance between the sweet notes of the Californian Merlot and the signature flavours of our own Dalmore house style. Bottled at natural strength and with notes of chocolate truffle, coffee and black toffee, this year’s exclusive distillery release is a treat worth snapping up for any visitors to our distillery.”

Up to 270 bottles will be available to purchase, priced at £200 from The Dalmore Distillery at Alness, Ross-shire, Scotland, IV17 0UT.
