All about making whisky
Built in 1962 by William Lawson Distillers Ltd (John Dewars & Sons), Macduff was one of only a small number of Scottish distilleries to be founded in the 1920’s. When it first began, all of its malt was used for William Lawson, a blend well-known to France in the 1980s. Later, a ten year old version of its single malt was released under the name Glen Deveron. Only a handful of independent bottlers, including Signatory Vintage and Gordon & MacPhail, offer vintage bottlings of this highly exclusive single malt.
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
