All about making whisky
Located in the heart of the former capital of whisky, Glen Scotia is today just one of three distilleries in Campbeltown to hold a whisky production licence. This town, located in the south of the Kintyre peninsula, was the ancient scene of what could be called the “barley rush”, and in the 1880s was home to some 30 distilleries, including Glen Scotia, which was founded in 1832. At the end of the 20th century, Glen Scotia was mothballed on various occasions (from 1984 to 1989 and from 1994 to 2000), leaving it, likes its counterpart Springbank, with many shortfalls in its stocks. Mostly available as a 12 year old official bottling.
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 Cask Strength Collection of single malt and single grain whiskies is without doubt one of the most appreciated ranges. Each release is bottled undiluted, unchillfiltered and usually consists of a single cask. To help the consumer appreciate their whisky at more than a purely aromatic and gustatory level, Signatory Vintage takes care to display on each label, with great precision, the region of production, the date of distillation and bottling, the type of cask used, its number and the number of bottles of the same nectar that were produced. This range thus offers some fascinating facts, in addition to exceptional quality!
