The Dalmore

Dalmore Distillery

The Dalmore distillery was established in 1839 by Alexander Matheson, when descendants of the Mackenzie Clan took over the ownership of The Dalmore distillery in 1867, they proudly added their emblem of the 12-pointed Royal Stag on the bottle.

To this day, the Stag still adorns each and every bottle of The Dalmore. The story behind the emblem dates back to 1263, when Colin of Kintail, Chief of the Clan Mackenzie, felled a charging stag which attacked King Alexander III of Scotland. In return for saving his life, the grateful King gifted the 12-pointed Royal Stag emblem to the Mackenzie Clan as a reward.
