The brand

Founded in 1825, Glencadam became the property of the Angus Dundee Distillers group in 2003. Its exceptionally fruity character is related to the shape of its stills whose lyne arms, instead of descending, are inclined slightly upwards, which increases the reflux of spirit vapours. Introduced in Europe at the beginning of 2009, its new range was presented at the prestigious World Whisky Awards as soon as it was released. And against all expectations, except those of its owners, the Glencadam 10 Year Old was awarded the highly-coveted title of “best single malt in its category” (single malt aged less than 12 years).

Merchant

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 line

Single malts et single grains mis en bouteille en brut de fût, la gamme Rare Reserve est en tout point similaire à la Cask Strength Collection, à ceci près qu’elle ne réunit que des embouteillages hors du commun par leur âge et leur rareté. Chaque cuvée est embouteillée sans réduction, sans filtrage à froid et, le plus souvent, à partir d’un seul fût unique. Pour aider le consommateur à apprécier son whisky au-delà du niveau purement aromatique et gustatif, Signatory Vintage s’efforce d’afficher sur chaque étiquette, et de manière très précise, la région de production, la date de distillation et de mis en bouteille, le type de fût utilisé, son numéro et le nombre de bouteilles produites.
