Luxury Vacations: Have you ever ordered your signature drink and then regretted when it came back not exactly the way you imagined? Wouldn’t it be amazing if there could be a special drink, designed just for you? In the Scottish Highlands, The Dalmore has been custom blending Scotch for over a century.

The Dalmore is a single malt Scotch whisky distilled in Alness, Scotland, with water from the River Averon and grains that are grown in the region. Because of its location and flavor, The Dalmore is true Highland malt.

Surrounding the distillery are the beautiful Scottish Highlands, filled with a rich history of rivaling clans and castles. The Dalmore legend tells that in 1263, ancestors of the Clan MacKenzie saved the King of Scotland from being gored by a wild stag. As thanks, the King granted him the right to use the stag’s horns on his family crest. The legend continues to this day, as each bottle of The Dalmore bears the emblem and the MacKensizie clan motto, “I Shine, Not Burn,” is within each specially crafted bottle.

To fully enjoy the luxury of The Dalmore, travel to the Scottish Highlands for a special package that allows you to enjoy the beautiful surroundings of the ancient lineage of the world’s most exquisite single malt Scotch from the comfort of a luxury hotel. For $85,000, experience The Dalmore scotch in a handcrafted case, four nights in Scotland, first-class airfare and transfers, city and country tour, private barrel tasting of resting casks, and a day of falconry with the world¹s foremost master distiller, Richard Paterson.

You also get to bring the experience home with you. During your stay, Richard will get to know you and your preferences as well as taste. Be prepared for questions such as:

He has won numerous accolades and his superior award-winning blends have been served to some of the most discerning discriminating connoisseurs in the world.

The Dalmore is more than just a Scotch; it is the experience of The Highlands in every luxurious sip.
