The Dalmore Taps A Legendary Chef For This Unique 49-Year Scotch

Apr 29, 2019

Category: Vices

Ask even the most cynical of whisky experts and they’ll tell you that a 49-year-old spirit is a very special thing. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be made more special — which is exactly the case with this one-of-a-kind L’Anima scotch whiskey from The Dalmore and legendary chef Massimo Bottura.

Alongside The Dalmore’s renowned master distiller, Richard Patterson, Bottura’s first foray into the whisky world is a remarkable single malt created from three unique assemblages — boasting aromas of chocolate and raisins, a palate with hints of coffee and savory pastries, and a refreshing fruit-forward finish. And while this inebriant is exceptional on its own, it’s headed to Sotheby’s auction block alongside a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity: a dinner for two at Massimo Bottura’s restaurant. Furthermore, 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go toward Bottura’s non-profit organization, Food for Soul. At the time of writing, the current bid sits at $77,586.

Purchase: $77,586+
