Dalmore's Richard Paterson Completes 50th Anniversary Tour


17th October 2017
Richard Paterson has completed his 50th Anniversary world tour which saw the rare Domaine Henri Giraud Champagne cask finished Dalmore 50 year old sell out as well as the sale of the unique £987,500 Dalmore Paterson Collection.

Richard Paterson and the rare Domaine Henri Giraud Champagne cask finished Dalmore 50 year old which has now sold out.

The Dalmore’s Master Distiller Richard Paterson has completed the final leg of his world tour celebrating 50 years in the whisky industry.

Over the past 6 months Richard has hosted 50th Anniversary events around the world in cities including Paris, Singapore, London and Las Vegas, meeting with whisky enthusiasts and industry experts and no doubt enthralling them with his unique style and personality as well as his enthusiasm and knowledge of the Scotch whisky he continues to create after 50 years in the whisky industry.

Earlier in the year we saw The Dalmore release a rare Domaine Henri Giraud Champagne cask finished Dalmore 50 year old to mark Richard Paterson's half century crafting whisky, the rare 50 year old was showcased at the 50th Anniversary events and all fifty bottles of the £50,000 Domaine Henri Giraud champagne finished 50 year old single malt, which were prepared to order, have now sold out.

The Dalmore Paterson Collection purchased earlier this year for £987,500 by a young Chinese collector.

Rather appropriately, Richards 50th anniversary year also saw the sale of The Dalmore Paterson Collection which was launched in 2013, it is a truly unique collection of just 12 rare whiskies costing a cool £987,500. The one-of-a-kind collection which Richard created to honour those who have shaped, influenced and inspired his whisky career were purchased earlier this year for £987,500 by a young Chinese collector. The collection encompasses some of The Dalmore Distillery’s oldest and rarest whiskies. Personally I like to imagine that the unique 12 bottle collection is being enjoyed by the buyer and not sitting on a shelf.

Richard Paterson, Master Distiller at The Dalmore commented: "It has been absolute privilege for me to travel the world these past six months celebrating my milestone with friends and colleagues from the wider whisky industry who have helped shape my career to date.

"To share with them a whisky which defines my working career, has been an extremely rewarding experience. Showcasing the champagne-finished The Dalmore 50 at each of these events has been a fitting way to mark these celebrations while showcasing our ability to innovate in both maturation and cask curation."

"With all 50 bottles now sold and the sale of The Paterson Collection, which is truly a distillation of my life in the industry, this has drawn a perfect close to what has been a truly exceptional year in my life."

Although you wont find Richard's special 50th anniversary bottling of The Dalmore 50 or The Paterson Collection in shops now you will still find the current Dalmore core range as well as some special limited edition releases such as the recently released The Dalmore Quintessence (although it now has very limited availability) available from specialist whisky shops such as Master of Malt and The Whisky Exchange
