The Dalmore Rivers collection is four whiskies created by Richard Paterson so you can expect exceptionally well crafted whiskies. Richard has tried to reflect the character, charm and differences of each of these great fishing rivers. A donation will be made from the sale of these whiskies to the charitable trusts who work to keep these rivers beautiful. Each whisky is bespoke and unique in character, much like the great rivers they support.
These whiskies feature in Steven McConachie's tasting during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2011. Come an try them then.
