New release, bottled for the BeLux Tour 2016. An Edradour matured in a Madeira Cask. A lovely combination, which worked out VERY well!! Great bottling!

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.

Edradour distillery is a Highland single malt whisky distillery based in Pitlochry, Perthshire. Its owners claim it to be the smallest distillery in Scotland, but this title now belongs to Strathearn Distillery, also in Perthshire. Edradour has been owned by the Signatory Vintage Scotch Whisky Company since 2002, and was previously owned by Pernod Ricard. Signatory, founded in 1988, is primarily an Independent bottler and is based in Pitlochry. Established in 1825, the distillery was traditionally run by three men, but now there are just two. Only eighteen casks are produced each week.
