In 1839, Alexander Matheson searched for the perfect location for his distillery, but his criteria for the choice of location were not those of the rest of the region. Some had already decided to build their distilleries in the Speyside Valley. There was an existing infrastructure and a well-functioning transport link, and the climate there was also "friendlier" than in other parts of Scotland. Matheson paid attention to the quality of the natural resources to make the best whisky. So he settled in a remote place on the shore of the Cromarty Firth, exposed to the harsh winds of the North Sea. In this "wild" spot he had everything rebuilt from scratch, from the railway tracks to the Rickhouse. Matheson went his own way, which is still reflected in the character and taste of Dalmore.
