Whyte & Mackay is to launch its first Travel Retail-exclusive range, The Dalmore Fortune Merita Collection, next year. 

The company, which unveiled the collection at the Tax Free World Association exhibition in Cannes, France this week, said the three-piece aims to capitalise on The Dalmore's success in Travel Retail. The three whiskies are matured in sherry casks from the Spanish sherry bodega, Gonzalez Byass.

The range includes:

  • The Dalmore Regalis (40% abv), which is finished in amoroso wood and priced EUR75 (US$95) per one-litre bottle
  • The Dalmore Luceo (40%, EUR85), finished in apostoles wood.
  • The Dalmore Dominium (43%, EUR120), finished in matusalem wood.

Last year, Whyte & Mackay launched The Dalmore Valour exclusively into Travel Retail.

In May, Emperador Inc agreed to acquire Whyte & Mackay from Diageo-controlled United Spirits for GBP430m (US$729m). The deal has yet to complete.
