- The brand
Closed in 1986, Glenglassaugh was bought in 2008 by The Scaent Group, a company better known in the world of energy than in the world of whisky. Altogether, renovation work included, the operation cost around seven million pounds. As the majority of the stock still available was essentially over 30 years old, in 2008 the decision was made for Glenglassaugh to begin again from scratch. Under the initiative of its new owners, various versions of its new make spirit were launched alongside some very respectable releases dating back to the end of the 1960s. Bottlings from this distillery are extremely rare, both in terms of its official bottlings and those released by independent bottlers.
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!
