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.
Strathmill Distillery was founded in 1892, originally named Glenisla due to its location along the river Isla near Keith. It was renamed Strathmill when the English Gin company W&A Gilbey purchased the distillery in 1895. It has now been owned by Diageo since 1997. Fermentations run long and the two sets of stills feature purifiers to produce a fruity, yet slightly oily spirit character.
This Strathmill single malt has been initial matured in a refill Sherry Butt, it was then finished in a fresh Sherry Butt for 8 Months and bottled at 61.2% ABV for the Signatory Vintage Cask Strength Collection.
