Rare whisky collection from The Dalmore created for Harrods
Scottish distillery The Dalmore has partnered with Harrods to launch The Dalmore Paterson Collection, named after master distiller Richard Paterson who assessed, nosed, tasted and selected each whisky blend for the lot of a dozen bottles.
The price tag for the world’s only collection of its kind? A cool £987,500.
Whiskies range in date from 1926 to the 1990s and make up a surprisingly personal collection linked to Paterson. Bottles are named after either important figures in Paterson’s life such as his father and grandfather, as well as James Whyte and Charles Mackay, the founders of The Dalmore’s parent company.
Bottles are handcrafted, full lead crystal decanters made by crystal house Glencairn, while luxury jeweler Hamilton & Inches hand-engraved the silver that embellishes the bottles. All 12 bottles are presented in a wooden case that took cabinet maker Gavin Robertson more than 700 hours to design and craft.
Accompanying the collection is a calfskin leather-bound ledger detailing the process in Paterson’s own handwriting. Each page has been hand-folded and foiled in silver, before being bound.
So even if you are not wiiling to spend such money on a whisky, you should pay a visit to Harrods to check the beautiful bottles.
