A bottle of Glenlivet's 'Unblended All-Malt' 20 year old whisky, bottled as a limited edition of 2400 bottles for the company's Italian importer Baretto. We believe this to have been released in the late 1960s, meaning the whisky would have been distilled immediately post-war in the 1940s.
A very special bottling of Hazelwood whisky. This is the first bottling of single malt whisky from Kininvie distillery. Given to selected staff members of the distillery, it was specially selected to celebrate the 105th birthday of Janet Sheed Roberts on August 13th 2006. This whisky has been matured for 15 years and bottled at 105 proof (52.5%).
Strathisla is one of those great Speyside distilleries (like Glenfarclas, Macallan, Glen Grant etc) with a spirit capable of immense ageing. This Gordon and Macphail bottling is astonishing value for money for a fifty-year-old malt.
A single cask release of 1967 vintage Coleburn. This whisky has been matured for 34 years and bottled by Douglas Laing for their Platinum Selection series. Bottled at cask strength and limited to just 287 bottles.
Samaroli is an Italian independent bottler, famed for the exceptional quality of their releases and for their arty, innovative labels and packaging. This Mortlach is an excellent example of the labels that Samaroli are so well known for.
A special release of Longmorn 1969 whisky, specially selected by Signatory for their 10th Anniversary in 1998. This whisky has been matured in Oak cask for 28 years and was bottle at cask strength specifically for the occasion. The bottle comes in a wonderful presentation box, complete with two Signatory-branded tumblers.
