The Dalmore distillery was founded in 1839 and is located in a beautiful setting overlooking the Black Isle and the Cromarty Firth. The distillery resembles a country railway station, but adopts modern production methods that currently enable the distillery to produce about 1.2 million gallons of whisky per year. It was taken over during World War I by the Royal Navy and its facilities were used for assembling naval mines. It started producing whisky again in 1922. It now has eight stills and also produces its own maltings. Though not very well known as yet, the Dalmore single malt is deserving of a greater following than it now has.
