Luxury whiskey brand The Dalmore knows that great art, be that in a building, on a wall or in a glass, can help us transcend the quotidien. The Dalmore is partnering with Zaha Hadid Architects and V&A Dundee, to present two new releases: a glass sculpture and collectable presentation case housing two new, exceptionally rare Highland Single Malt whiskies. These new projects were a truly collaborative effort between The Dalmore’s Master Whisky Maker Gregg Glass, Master Distiller Richard Paterson OBE, and Melodie Leung, director at Zaha Hadid Architects. “This was a true meeting of minds,” says Glass, “and the new releases beautifully express the shared journey we’ve all been on.”

The Dalmore Luminary – The Rare – 2024 Edition is a glass sculpture designed by Melodie Leung, with amber spirals that curl around an exceptionally rare 49-year-old Highland Single Malt whisky. The creation of this piece involved the work of master glass artists that spanned over 500 hours, and its design was inspired by the interaction of flow and flavor notes in the whisky-making process. This is a true collector’s item, as only three decanters and two sculptures were produced. The Rare will be auctioned off at Sotheby’s later this month, with all proceeds donated to the V&A Dundee.

The Dalmore Luminary – The Collectible – 2024 Edition features a small amount of rare peated Dalmore spirit housed in a special presentation case that echoes the design of Leung’s swirling glass sculpture. This is a unique fusion of flavor and form, highlighting the artistry at the heart of whisky-making. The Collectible is now available at select luxury and specialist retailers worldwide as well as global travel retailers.
