The Masterpiece has arrived. 

Sit down, this is massive.

We’ve landed the first in The Dalmore Luminary series. It’s here, exclusive to the Club, and it’s the first time ever that whisky lovers in Australia have the chance to enjoy a luxury Dalmore first edition.

The Dalmore Luminary No.1 follows Dalmore’s record-breaking Decades Collection which reached $1,500,000 at auction - and never came anywhere near Australia. 

Hands down the biggest whisky to hit the nation this year, the Luminary series brings together Scotland, Japan – and Italy in a masterpiece of whisky making from the world’s most renowned whisky maker, Richard “the Nose” Patterson. 

An homage to Scotland’s new landmark art museum, Dundee’s V&A designed by Japan’s Kenzo Kuma and Italy’s Maurizio Muccicola, this exceptional single malt has been matured in hand-selected Italian Amarone casks and a world first: virgin “Kintsugi” casks. 

Commissioned exclusively for this masterpiece release, these casks are crafted from Japanese Mizunara, Scottish Tay and American white oak to make a whisky that emulates the intricate design of the museum - and encapsulates the perfection of Dalmore.

Decadently rich and deeply complex with layer upon layer of creamy panna cotta, chocolate and moist ginger cake, this piece of non-chill-filtered whisky artistry comes in at 46.8% ABV and has no added colour. 

Orders for The Dalmore Luminary No1 have now closed, but there's plenty more to come! If you’re not a Member of our Club yet, now is the time to join!

The Dalmore's History

Located in Alness, just north of Inverness on the shores of Cromarty Firth in the Scottish Highlands, The Dalmore Distillery has been crafting whisky since 1839 when it was founded by well-to-do businessman Alexander Matheson. Matheson was a partner in Jardine, Matheson & Co, a Hong Kong headquartered firm that at the time was trading in smuggled opium, tea, and cotton. As the Jardine empire was well on its way to massive success (it’s now one of the 300 largest public companies in the world), Matheson let others do the hard work and leased Dalmore out to a number of families, sadly with little success.
