Bowmore 1994 17yo Signatory (70cl, 48.8%)


A cask strength single cask bottling from Signatory Vintage. Signatory Vintage was founded by Andrew and Brian Symington in 1988. Until 1998, Brian Symington was co-owner but left the company then. In July 2002 Signatory Vintage bought Edradour Distillery in the Highlands and - in 2007 - moved their head office from Edinburgh to Pitlochry.  This time, they've bottled a mid-aged Islay Malt. This Bowmore, bottled for The Nectar, Belgium will please you...

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.

Bowmore produces scotch whisky on the isle of Islay, an island of the Inner Hebrides. The distillery, which lies on the South Eastern shore of Loch Indaal, is one of the oldest in Scotland and is said to have been established in 1779. The distillery is owned by Morrison Bowmore Distillers Ltd, a holding company owned by Japanese drinks company Suntory. Morrison Bowmore also own the Auchentoshan and Glen Garioch distilleries and produce the McClelland's Single Malt range of bottlings.
