Signatory Vintage are an independent bottler founded in 1988 by Andrew and Brian Symington. The name ‘Signatory’ was derived from the initial intention to find a person of suitable standing to sign the labels for bottles drawn from a single cask. The first cask bottled was a 1968 Glenlivet which quickly sold through long before any suitable signee could be found. Signatory currently bottle at three strengths: 43%, 46% Unchillfiltered (UCF) and Cask Strength.To add proof of authenticity to their cask strength bottlings, Signatory always include the cask numbers, date of distillation, date of bottling and number of bottles produced.Signatory Vintage’s aim is to offer as wide a range of whiskies as possible, some of which are not even bottled by the proprietary distillery. This allows malt enthusiast to sample the huge variety of subtle differences which occur between casks.
The Glenburgie Distillery was built in 1829 but didn’t actually start to produce whisky till 1936 when it became a vital ingredient to produce Ballantine’s blend. It was purchased at the same time as Miltonduff by a Canadian firm called Hiram Walker. Like Miltonduff, it was home to a pair of ‘Lomond’ stills from 1958 to 1981, which produced a malt known as Glencraig. In 2004 the distillery was demolished and a new much larger site was erected and a third pair of stills added. It is now owned by Chivas Brothers or as we better know them Pernod Ricard.
This single malt whisky was distilled in 1995 at the Glenburgie distillery before being placed in and left to mature for no less than 24 years. In 2020 it was bottled at 54.3% abv as part of the Signatory Vintage Cask Strength Collection. Only 181 bottles were produced.
