The Dalmore reveals 60-years-old whisky

Whyte & Mackay has launched a limited edition 60-years-old single malt from its Dalmore Distillery in celebration of the distillery's 180th anniversary.

The Dalmore 60 Year Old has been created from two twin casks — the last casks of the Mackenzie era — which have been lying in repose side by side in the Scottish highlands. This single malt is limited to three decanters.

Master distiller Richard Paterson created The Dalmore 60 Years Old by uniting two ex-sherry casks from six decades ago. These were then filled with spirit first distilled on 7 June 1951. 

Richard Paterson notes: “Over the course of the past 180 years, The Dalmore has constantly strived for perfection, setting the standards for many other whisky makers today. The Dalmore 60 Years Old is a fitting tribute to the masterful talents of our distillers past and present, who have all helped to create an incredible body of work. For me personally, nurturing and caring for these two casks has been a true labour of love. The reunion of the two spirits has produced an unforgettable whisky that is truly greater than the sum of its parts.”

The Dalmore 60 Years Old will be unveiled at a celebration at The Dalmore’s highland home to mark 180 years of whisky making, before embarking on a global tour to Shanghai, Los Angeles, Taipei, and London. 

Further details of the sale and global tour will be announced in due course. Further information on the 180th anniversary of The Dalmore distillery and the release of The Dalmore 60 Years Old is available at
