Mr Snow seems to be on a retreat just now so got to make the most of the winter excuse.
The Dalmore bottles are stunning to look at with their 12 pointer stags head across the front, the reason for the stags head? Here’s your answer……..
In 1263 the ancestor of Clan Mackenzie saved King Alexander III from being gored by a stag with a single arrow. The grateful King granted him the right to bear a stag’s head in his coat of arms, with the motto ‘Help the King’ (Cuidich ‘ N Righ, in the Gaelic language). The Dalmore Distillery was long owned by the Mackenzie family, and every bottle of The Dalmore is adorned with this noble emblem: a stag’s head, with twelve points to its antlers, signifying a ‘royal’.
A reminder of our heroic past and an inspiration for all who taste our Single Highland Malt.
The grandest of them all the Johnnie Walker Blue Label blended to recreate the tastes of some of the earliest nineteenth century whisky blends. All bottles are numbered and come in a silk lined box with certificate of authenticity.
