Dalmore Luminary Series Announces Two New Offerings


March 25, 2024

The Dalmore Luminary – The Collectible - 2024

The Dalmore Luminary Series, curated in partnership with V&A Dundee, is releasing new masterpieces: a glass amber sculpture and collectable presentation case housing two new, extremely rare Highland Single Malt whiskies.

The collaboration is the second in a three-part series which celebrates the relentless pursuit of excellence through compelling collaborations between luminaries in whisky mastery and architectural design. Luminary No.2 was created by Melodie Leung, Director at Zaha Hadid Architects, together with Gregg Glass, Master Whisky Maker at The Dalmore, and Master Distiller Richard Paterson OBE.

The result is two releases that creatively stretch the signature styles of Zaha Hadid Architects and The Dalmore to delight both whisky and design enthusiasts in a fascinating exploration of flavour and form.

The Dalmore Luminary – The Rare – 2024 Edition(40.6% ABV) is a 49 Year Old Single Malt finished in a blend of port, sherry and bourbon casks. Only three decanters and two glass sculptures of The Rare will ever be made, one of which will be auctioned at Sotheby’s with all proceeds donated to Scotland’s design museum.

The Dalmore Luminary – The Collectible – 2024 Edition(48.6% ABV) is a 16 Year Old bourbon-matured whisky finished in a blend of port pipes and sherry casks. The bottle is housed in a presentation case that echoes the swirling design of The Rare sculpture. 20,000 sets will be available at leading luxury, specialist and travel retailers globally from April 2nd with a recommended retail price of $350 USD.

“The new releases beautifully express the meeting of minds and the shared journey we’ve been on,” Glass said. “While crafting our two new whiskies, we used the technique of time – nurtured carefully to transform through blending –  to elevate The Dalmore to new heights.”
