[Cromarty Firth at Dalmore Distillery]

Dalmore enjoys one of the finer settings of any Scottish distillery, overlooking the Cromarty Firth just outside the Highland town of Alness. A distinctive stag's head adorns its whisky bottles, mirroring the Mackenzie clan crest as a nod to the family which owned the distillery between 1867 and 1960. We were impressed with the distillery tour (not to mention the whisky itself), despite photography restrictions being the strictest we've seen. Mobile phones, cameras and electronic devices had to be locked away in a separate building prior to the tour, and so our only photograph from the visit is taken looking in the other direction, out to sea. Back inside, among the things to look out for is the unusual still room, featuring wash stills with flat tops and spirit stills encased in cooling jackets to encourage reflux.
