- The brand
In 2007, the Diageo group launched a new range of single malts under the generic name “The Singleton”. Owners of the Glen Ord distillery, a 12 year old version of its single malt was released on the Asian market, while Glendullan was launched in the USA, and Dufftown in Europe. This version of Glen Ord was then followed by two other releases in the 90s and at the beginning of the millennium. With a production capacity of five million litres of pure spirit every year, Glen Ord is one of the largest distilleries in Scotland. Its malt makes an essential contribution to the blends Johnnie Walker and Dewars.
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!
