All about making whisky
Bottled exclusively for LMDW, this single malt comes from a single cask at the Glenburgie distillery. Limited to just 425 bottles, the whisky is matured entirely in hogsheads for 17 years. Smooth and malty, it is marked by notes of ripe fruit (plum, pineapple), salt and minerals.
Sourcing actor, importer and exclusive distributor of a portfolio of international brands, La Maison du Whisky is, since 60 years a reference for whisky and spirit lovers. Thanks to our close relationships with producers and independent bottlers, we have access to limited editions and unique products we bring to market exclusively. Curious and creative, we are driven by our passion for products and our desire to constantly bring our clients the latest expressions through our own shops, our website whisky.fr and selected wine retail shops in France.
Founded in 1829 (or 1810 according to certain sources), the Glenburgie distillery has always been linked with the Ballantine’s blend and the Allied Domecq company. Since 1958, Glenburgie had the unusual feature of housing two Lomond type stills, which are very rarely used in the industry. They were replaced by traditional pot stills in 1981. Interestingly, its malt can also be found under the name Glencraig, in tribute to William Craig, a former director of production at Ballantine’s.
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
