All about making whisky
Maintaining its image as a small-batch distillery, Glen Garioch caused a stir in September 2009 by launching a new version of its single malt: the Glen Garioch 1797 Founder’s Reserve. This highly symbolic release celebrated the renovation of the distillery which, having become the property of the Japanese group Suntory in 1994, was reopened in 1997, exactly 200 years after it was first founded.
Founded in 1968, Samaroli is now one of the last remaining Italian whisky bottlers. Its founder, Silvano Samaroli was responsible for legendary bottlings, including a highly-prized 1966 Bowmore. Following a tasting of some very fine quality samples, we decided to introduce a small range of Samaroli bottlings that reflect the company’s dedication to its craft.
