All about making whisky
Benrinnes remains relatively undiscovered, but is nevertheless well-known amongst whisky lovers. Its tumultuous history featured a succession of reconstructions and changes in ownership, until in 1925 it was finally given some stability by being incorporated into the Distillers Company Limited. This distillery, which was equipped with its own saladin box for malting its barley until 1984, is noted for its rather unconventional “partial triple distillation”. Although its rare official bottlings have remained in the shadows: The Flora & Fauna and Rare Malts collections, its most expressive whiskies are to be found on the independent bottlings market.
Although the independent bottler Signatory Vintage cannot claim to be one of the oldest in Scotland, it has managed to build up an extremely solid reputation amongst the great malt connoisseurs. The creator of the famous range The Prestonfield and many other well-known ranges, it is best known for its un-chillfiltered and cask strength bottlings that offer amateurs the chance to enjoy their whisky in its most natural form. It was also one of the first independent bottlers to acquire a distillery and now offers a growing number of expressions of one of the most artisan single malts available.
The Un-Chillfiltered Collection enables enthusiasts to enjoy the flavour of whisky that has not undergone chill filtering. Like cognac, armagnac and other fine spirits, most whiskies today are chill filtered. The whiskies in this range have an appearance and aromatic range that is much more faithful to the original products. Richer, oilier, more aromatic and distinctive, these whiskies are from single casks or are a blend of two or three casks at the most. They offer the ultimate authentic taste experience! Find out more
