The Dalmore distillery was founded in 1839
and is located in a beautiful setting overlooking the Black
Isle and the Cromarty Firth. The distillery resembles a country
railway station, but adopts modern production methods that
currently enable the distillery to produce about 1.2 million
gallons of whisky per year. It was taken over during World
War I by the Royal Navy and its facilities were used for assembling
naval mines. It started producing whisky again in 1922. It
now has eight stills and also produces its own maltings. Though
not very well known as yet, the Dalmore single malt is deserving
of a greater following than it now has.
