- The brand
Built in 1973 by the Chivas Brothers group, Braeval was originally called Braes of Glenlivet. In 1996 it changed its name in order to avoid confusion with the Glenlivet distillery owned by the same group. Almost 100% of its production is used for blends including Chivas Regal.
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.
