The Dalmore 12 year Scotch
|Brand||The Dalmore 12 year Scotch|
The Dalmore distillery is located in Alness, near Inverness, in the Highland region of Scotland. Distilling operations began in 1839, though the legends surrounding the label extend much farther back in Scottish history.
King Alexander III was saved from a stag by Colin of Kintail – the chief of Clan MacKenzie and ancestor of former Dalmore distillery operators – while on a hunt in the year 1263. In appreciation for this act of bravery, the king granted the lands of Eilean Donan and the right to bear the stag’s head in their coat of arms to Clan MacKenzie. Though the Mackenzies leasing of the Dalmore distillery only lasted from 1867 through 1960, their stag’s head continues to adorn bottles of The Dalmore on store shelves worldwide to this day.
