The Dalmore has debuted its Cask Curation Series with The Sherry Edition. The 2023 release celebrates Jerez de la Frontera’s renowned fifth-generation winemakers González Byass.
The Dalmore Cask Curation Series – The Sherry Edition comprises three aged-statement whiskies finished in the finest of González Byass casks: The 26 Year Old, finished in rare Gonzalez Byass 2002 vintage, Cask No.2; The 28 Year Old, finished in very rare Gonzalez Byass 30 Year Old Matusalem Sherry Cask; and The 43 Year Old, finished in very rare Gonzalez 30 year old Apostoles Sherry Cask. These sherry casks are exclusively available to the whisky makers of The Dalmore.
Created at The Dalmore Distillery, Scotland, by Master Whisky Makers Gregg Glass and Richard Paterson OBE, The Sherry Edition celebrates The Dalmore’s century-old exclusive partnership with Gonalez Byass. This fifth-generation winery is led today by Master Winemaker Antonio Flores and his daughter Silvia Flores.
The Sherry Edition story begins on the vine in Andalusia. Sherry wine is laid down there to develop its character over time, alive as it serpentines from cask to cask. Each Sherry cask resides for years in a bodega. On their regular visits to these spaces, The Dalmore’s whisky makers pick out casks with the potential for maturing whisky. Each cask has already lived a lifetime under the watchful eye of the winemakers at Gonzalez Byass, before being selected as vessels for Single Malt Scotch at The Dalmore. The Sherry Edition features three whiskies born of casks that between them represent 80 years drenched in Gonzalez Byass wines.
Limited to just 150 sets, The Sherry Collection comes presented in a bespoke leather-finished travel case handcrafted in Florence, Italy. Each age-statement whisky is housed in the Dalmore bottle adorned with a matching collar;.
This collection is the first chapter. In 2024 the second release in The Dalmore Cask Curation Series will shine a light on the influence Port pipes have on the spirit, and celebrate the distillery’s partnership with a famous Port wine maker. The third release arrives in 2026, followed by the fourth and final release concluding the series in 2027. Each release will celebrate The Dalmore’s relationships with the world’s finest makers of wine and spirits.
