Default Dalmore Rivers Collection

As part of our wide range of fundraising activities this year on Deeside, we were able to launch the Dalmore Rivers Collection at Balmoral on the 20th January to a large audience. Last years Dee Dram was extremely popular with anglers and licensees alike, and ultimately helped raise a substantial amount of money for the River Dee conservation programmes. We decided to look at this again in conjunction with the big salmon rivers in Scotland. All 4 big salmon rivers have agreed to work on a collaborative project to raise funds for each of the rivers for much needed riverine improvements. It is hoped this will help raise a substantial sum in the process and allow the River Trusts and Foundations to obtain match funding to support their respective fundraising activities.The Dalmore raises funds to protect Scottish rivers | TheMoodieReport.com

We had the national launch of the Dalmore Rivers Collection of Brand New Single Malt whiskies created by Master Distiller Richard Paterson of the Whyte and Mackay group. They have very generously agreed to continue with the fundraising initiative where it is hoped that anglers and lovers of whisky may buy a bottle and in the process support the big 4 salmon rivers in Scotland in the process. The whiskies are available to purchase at Tesco's new online site here The Dalmore rivers collection Online Spirits The product will be an ideal gift for anglers and the set look fantastic when viewed out of the box. I hope this is of interest to some of the readers who may go on to purchase the collection and enjoy the unique characteristics of the respective whiskies.

Details about the individual whiskies can be accessed through these url's

The Strathspey & Baddenoch Herald reports

A NEW malt whisky dedicated to the Spey – which will help fund work to improve the river’s salmon spawning grounds by Loch Insh – will be officially launch this Friday.

The Dalmore has produced a collection of four bespoke whiskies to raise much needed funds to conserve Scotland’s most important salmon rivers.

It is the first time the Dee, Spey, Tay and Tweed trustees have worked together with one partner to raise funds to protect some of Scotland’s finest sport and tourist attractions.

The launch for the Spey Foundation Dram will take place at Delfur Lodge, by Orton, in Moray.

John Beard, chief executive of Whyte and Mackay which owns The Dalmore brand, said: “We are delighted to help raise money for Scotland’s big four rivers.

“They are not only loved by fishing fans and tourists alike, but they are also the lifeblood of smaller communities across Scotland.”

The money raised last year by the Dalmore Dee Dram is helping to open up 25 miles of river and important spawning grounds that have been blocked for as long as 100 years.

For every single £40 bottle sold, a minimum donation of £4 will be gifted to the relevant river trust or foundation.

It is hoped that £400,000 will be raised in total for the four rivers.

The funds brought in from the specially created Spey Foundation Dram will be used to benefit salmon spawning grounds up river from Loch Insh by Kincraig.
