Dalmore master blender Richard Paterson has partnered with renowned Michelin-starred Italian chef Massimo Bottura to produce a one-of-a-kind bottle for auction.
Dalmore L’Anima single malt Scotch whisky
Unique whisky: Just one bottle of Dalmore L’Anima has been created to raise funds for Food for Soul
Dalmore L’Anima Aged 49 Years is a unique bottling which will be auctioned at Sotheby’s this spring, with all proceeds donated to Bottura’s non-profit organisation Food for Soul.
The single malt is a marriage of Dalmore whiskies matured in ex-Bourbon barrels, Gonzalez Byass Sherry casks, which previously held 40-year-old Pedro Ximinez Sherry, and Graham’s vintage Port pipes.
Dalmore L’Anima – meaning soul in Italian – is said to have been inspired by Paterson and Bottura’s ‘shared creativity’ and ‘understanding of flavour’, with a palate of ‘freshly brewed Java coffee, Demerara sugar, pecan pie and crème brûlée’, reminiscent of Bottura’s cooking.
Bottura, who owns the three-Michelin starred Osteria Francescana in Modena, voted the best restaurant in the world by the World’s 50 Best Restaurant Awards in 2018, said: ‘Our creative processes seamlessly fused together with our passion and deep understanding of flavour complexity and connection to create a very special bottle that brings together some of the most precious Scotch whisky barrels in the world.’ Paterson added: ‘Bottura’s approach to deconstructing and reinventing daring food pairings is very similar to the way I approach whisky making. ‘The coming together of our passions allowed me to create a whisky that is bold, different, full of warmth and completely unforgettable – it is a true reflection of the love, blood and balsamic that unites us.’
