All about making whisky
The Glencadam distillery is often a little unknown, yet it produces one of the most elegant and exquisite malt. Released as part of the Rare Reserve collection, this highlands single malt was matured in hogshead casks and bottled in 2015 by the independent bottler Signatory Vintage. Dry and herbal, this single malt reflects notes of dry twigs.
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 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).
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.
