There are whiskies, there are whiskies and there are whiskies. And then there’s the Dalmore Paterson Collection. This ultimate collectors piece includes twelve completely unique whiskies produced by the Dalmore Master Distiller, Richard Paterson, who has held the prestigious position since 1970.
The Dalmore Distillery was founded in 1839 and for almost a century was owned by the Clan Mackenzie, who’s stunning family crest – the iconic royal stag’s antlers is hand-crafted in sterling silver on to each bottle of the Dalmore Paterson Collection. The distillery is located on the northern shores of the Firth of Cromarty in the Scottish Highlands. A location very important to Dalmore, as the local resources play a crucial role in the whiskies production. From the fresh waters of Loch Morie to the golden barley produced in the rich soils of the Black isle coast line.
The Dalmore Paterson Collection is presented in twelve iconic crystal decanters, which are housed in a glorious bespoke cabinet and include a one of a kind personal hand-written ledger from Richard Paterson himself. This gift is more of a legacy and for something so special you will expect a high price tag, but this is something for the hideously rich only. The billionaires. This will set you back almost one million pounds! A gift that you will want to keep for yourself or maybe a record executive will send to the likes of Jay-Z or a maybe a distant Royal Family would gift to somebody special. Who knows.
