Description

Established by Alexander Matheson, Dalmore Distillery sits on the banks of the Cromarty Firth overlooking the rich and fertile Black Isle. The name is half Gaelic and half ancient Norse and means the big meadowland. The distillery

was bought by the Mackenzie family in 1886, and the distilleries emblem, the twelve pointer stag was introduced from their clan crest. Ownership remained with the Mackenzies until 1960 when it was bought by the Glasgow based

Whyte & Mackay Group.

In 1956 a Saladin box was installed for malting barley. This operated until 1981, when malting production ceased.
