The first 1263 people that sign up to the brand's new website will be offered the opportunity to purchase a "Custodian" special edition whisky from the distiller. The program allows the buyers to select spirit hat was first set to cask at the turn of the Millennium, and will then decide when they want their whisky bottled - 2012, 2015 or 2018. The buyers will then choose from two different wood finishes, or "finesse," chosen by master distiller Richard Paterson.
"The wood and the age determine the final flavour and it's that personal choice that will make it distinct form anything else on the market," says Paterson.
Cost? Buyers will pay between $80 and $242 per bottle depending on the age and finish chosen.
The Dalmore is one of the most critically acclaimed distilleries in the world, and Paterson is the craftsman who created The Dalmore $100,000 whisky.
In addition to getting a bespoke bottle of Dalmore whisky numbered and signed by Richard Paterson, the 1263 buyers will have their names etched on the walls of the distillery when the new $1.4 million visitor center opens next year.
