- The brand
Founded in 1898, at the dawn of the biggest crisis to hit the whisky industry in the 19th century, Glentauchers spent its entire life overshadowed by production for blended scotch, with the majority of its malt being used for the Buchanan blend and, later, Black & White. After halting production during the two world wars, it finally closed its doors for good in 1985. In 1989 it was bought by the Allied Domecq group (Ballantine’s) before being taken over by the Pernod Ricard group in 2005. Though an official bottling did appear on the market in the 90s, bottlings of its single malts are seldom found. The rare versions that are available are released by independent bottlers such as Signatory Vintage and Gordon & Macphail.
A wine merchant recently founded by the Singh brothers, the owners of The Whisky Exchange in the United Kingdom, Speciality Drinks offers three ranges of very different single malts. The first, Port Askaig, is composed of four bottlings of an Islay single malt, including an expression with no age statement and a 30 year old! The second, Elements of Islay, celebrates the different distilleries on the island, each easily identified by their initials. The third, simply dubbed Speciality Drinks, offers a wide selection of single malts from Scottish distilleries.
The lineSingle Malts of Scotland: Over the years, Speciality Drinks has been acquiring top quality casks of maturing single malt whisky. Since 2005 we have been releasing these whiskies as ‘The Single Malts of Scotland’. Each Single Malts of Scotland bottling is individually selected for its particular quality & character.
