“The Dalmore offers some of Scotland’s most rare and precious whisky stocks, remarkable in their desirability to collectors, investors and drinkers alike and this bottle is no exception.

“It takes artistry to craft each bottle of The Dalmore and so it is our pleasure to invite the first 10 buyers of this special single malt to experience the home of our whisky.”
