Our guest this week is Craig Bridger of Whyte & Mackay. Craig brings us an impressive lineup of The Dalmore Single Malt Scotch Whiskies, including their 12 Year, USA-Exclusive 14 Year, Port Wood Reserve, and an exquisite and rare 18 Year Single Malt. Our US listeners should definitely keep their eyes out for the 14 Year. The 14 Year joins The Dalmore Principal Collection, exclusively in the USA. Master Whisky Maker Gregg Glass led its development, the first expression to be finished in hand-selected, rare Pedro Ximénez casks from the House of Gonzalez Byass.

About The Dalmore:
Founded by Sir Alexander Matheson, entrepreneur and international businessman, The Dalmore was born with a different purpose: to create a sumptuous single malt whisky unlike any other. Today, The Dalmore continues down that path as pioneers of exquisite cask curation, resulting in a whisky of legendary depth.
The Dalmore seeks to continue an age old heritage that treasures the sanctity of the cask. Their spirit is finessed in exceptional casks, hand selected by Master Whisky Maker, Gregg Glass and Master Distiller, Richard Paterson, sourced from the world’s finest bodegas and exclusive wineries.
The Dalmore’s Highland Distillery is located along spectacular Scottish coastline, on the shores of the Cromarty Firth. Guests can tour to discover their exceptional Single Malt whisky that they have made since 1839.
About Whyte & Mackay:
Founded Glasgow in 1844. Glasgow continues to be home to our international headquarters today. We are award-winning whisky makers celebrating 175 years of heritage. We proudly produce exceptional whiskies at our five distilleries across Scotland, that are celebrated around the world.
Our award-winning portfolio of brands includes four internationally recognised Single Malt Scotch Whiskies: The Dalmore, Jura, Fettercairn and Tamnavulin. Our premium whisky portfolio includes our namesake Whyte & Mackay Blended Whisky, alongside John Barr Blended Whisky, Claymore Blended Whisky and Glayva Liqueur.
In recent years, the Whyte & Mackay portfolio has and continues to enjoy significant growth and investment. In 2016, we welcomed the reborn Tamnavulin Single Malt Whisky to the portfolio. The following year, we honoured our relationship with Sir Ernest Shackleton, launching a contemporary whisky that bears his name. In 2018, Woodsman Whisky and Wildcat Gin joined the portfolio as modern contemporary spirits. 2018 saw further investment in our Single Malt Whisky portfolio, with the launch of a repositioned Fettercairn and Jura in 2018.
Our success across 175 years is built on our continued entrepreneurial spirit. That is as true today, as it was in 1844. It is reflected in our people across our business, all around the world. It is at the heart of the exceptional whisky we produce.
