Scottish Distillery Unveils Makeover

One of Scotland's most popular whisky (not "whiskey"—that's Irish) distilleries is unveiling a $1.6 million makeover.
 
The new Dalmore Visitor Experience adds several contemporary touches while paying homage to its 170-year history of producing award-winning single malt whisky. Tucked away in Scotland's Highlands region, the distillery now boasts LED lighting that we hear are designed to evoke fire and warmth, and hidden doors with a secret entrance leading to The Alchemy Room for tasting.

Incorporating The Dalmore's signature colors of burgundy and silver, the décor has a series of opulent touches like glossy black lacquer, lush velvet and leather, backlit frosted glass, a specially designed bottle display case and The Bloodline—a glass mosaic that runs throughout the distillery. Guests can sample Cigar Malt Reserve, The Dalmore's newest expression, already awarded a Gold Medal in this year's Beverage Testing Institute (BTI) Competition.
 
Located by the bay at Cromarty Firth twenty miles north of Inverness (about 180 miles north of Edinburgh), The Dalmore is a good home base for exploring Loch Morie and the rich coastal soils of Scotland's Black Isle.
