All about making whisky
Founded in 1876, Glenlossie is a distillery whose releases are particularly rare outside the world of independent bottlings. Like a large number of its counterparts, it was quickly integrated into the Scottish Malt Distillers Ltd at the end of the first world war, before being rebuilt after it was ravaged by a fire in 1929. In 1962, in the midst of a boom in the industry, its production capacity was increased. Nonetheless all of the malt produced at the distillery is destined for use in blends. Only a version of its single malt, aged 10 years, appeared in the Flora & Fauna range at the end of the 1990s.
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.
Baptised ‘Artist’, this new range makes no bones about proclaiming its identity. Cosmopolitan and contemporary, it draws its inspiration from the style that gave the Italian bottlings of the 60s and 70s their cult following. From the choice of whiskies (distillery, ageing process, age, strength, bottling procedure) to the design of the bottle and choice of label, every detail has been carefully considered. This range offers a fine presentation of both the whiskies and the artist whose works have been selected for the back labels.
