WHYTE & Mackay has launched a collection of some of its rarest Dalmore whiskies exclusively in the tax and duty free store at Heathrow’s terminal five.
The Dalmore Constellation Collection initially features 21 expressions which are said to have been matured in the “finest casks from around the world” before being bottled at natural cask strength and colour.
As part of the exclusive four-week arrangement with World Duty Free Group and Heathrow, the airport provided additional promotional space and the use of the Royal Suite for the launch.
Dalmore master distiller Richard Paterson said the aim is to release around 20,000 bottles – 4000 a year – under the Constellation Collection banner, which range in price from £20,000 for a bottle of the Vintage 1964 to £2000 for Vintage 1992.
“In selecting these casks, we have identified our brightest stars from our darkest warehouses,” he said.
“Although much has changed since 1964, what has not is the consistency of quality inherent in each and every Dalmore expression.
“We’re very proud to share the shining lights of our distillery with whisky lovers the world over.”
