SW_LL_AUTO_002

Triple distilled then matured for 15 years. A 1999 vintage Auchentoshan from independent bottler Signatory as part of the Un-Chillfiltered Collection. Distilled on September 1, it was matured in bourbon barrels 800263 and 800264 for 15 years before being bottled on 13 April 2015.

Signatory Vintage is one of Scotland's premier independent bottlers. Andrew and Brian Symington started bottling single malt whiskies in the late 1980's and built their own bottling plant in Edinburgh in the early 90's. The main 'brand' of Scotland's second largest independent whisky bottler is Signatory Vintage. The name of the brand and the company was based on the original idea to have every bottle they would release signed by a celebrity. Somehow that idea was never implemented, but the name stuck.

Apart from various series within this brand (Un-chillfiltered Collection, Silent Stills, etc.) the company markets several other brands like 'Scottish Wildlife' (in the 1990's), 'Dun Eideann' (bottled at 40%, mostly for European markets) and 'Prestonfield' (named after the hotel where the Symington brothers worked in the 1980's) - as well as the Edradour distillery since 2002.

Auchentoshan distillery is located in the west of Scotland. The name Auchentoshan is from Gaelic Achadh an t-Oisein and translates as "the field of the corner". The distillery is also known as "Glasgow's Malt Whisky" due to its close proximity to Glasgow and "the breakfast whisky" due to its sweet and delicate nature. Auchentoshan is located at the foot of the Kilpatrick hills on the outskirts of Clydebank in West Dunbartonshire near the Erskine Bridge. It is one of six malt whisky distilleries in the Scottish Lowlands along with Bladnoch, Glenkinchie and recently Daftmill Distillery, Annandale Distillery and Ailsa Bay Distillery.
