All about making whisky
Located in the North Highlands, Teaninich was at one time something of a double-headed distillery. In 1962, in response to increasing demand, its capacity for production was doubled and it began using four stills instead of two. In 1970, a new production unit “side A”, housing six new stills, was built next to the old unit, which then became known as “side B”. “Side B” was closed in 1984, with “side A” following in its footsteps just one year later. In 1991, the Teaninich of modern times once again became operational. Two official bottlings have since been released. The first, a 10 year old, was released as part of the Flora & Fauna range and the other was released as part of the Rare Malts collection.
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!
