World-Class Whisky

March 13, 2017
The Dalmore

Known for its wild, natural beauty and feisty history, Scotland is a dab hand at distilling whisky. So when luxury “liquid gold” label The Dalmore launched its debut Philippines flagship in Manila, connoisseurs of the amber nectar were more than a little piqued.

Housing some of the finest rare and exclusive single-malt whiskies, distilled in Scotland since 1839, the brand’s new store is in Uptown Bonifacio in Taguig. As the country’s first world-class whisky destination, the glossy, sophisticated emporium will stock The Constellation Collection, a 21-bottle set of whiskies showcasing the spectrum of cask finishes, created in the Highland distillery between 1964 and 1992 (the Philippines’ most expensive single-malt whisky range).

Splurge on The Dalmore 20 Year Old and you’ll enjoy VIP private lounge privileges, with vaults for storing your bottle so you can sip a dram in the complimentary den. “Keepers of the Den” are also treated to expertly guided whisky tastings and invites to exclusive bottle releases.

A 12-pointed royal stag adorns The Dalmore’s bottles harking back to the Mackenzie clan’s history, when in 1263 their ancestor saved the Scottish king from a charging stag, and was rewarded with the stag crest. The house’s unique whiskies are formed by its remote, rural location on the Cromarty Firth, ex-bourbon and aged sherry casks, and boundary-pushing spirit. Brave hearts indeed…
