The Ardmore is a distillery in the Scottish Highlands region, located at the highest point of the northern rail line, about 200 meters above sea level, near the town of Kennethmont. The location of the distillery was personally chosen by its founder, Adam Teacher, maker of the famous blended Teachers whiskey, to facilitate the transport of Ardmore for its blend.
In 1863 he developed the recipe of his famous blended Teachers, which contains a high percentage of barley whiskey malted with peat. To guarantee the supply of this type of whiskey, Adam founded the Ardmore in 1899. Since its founding the distillery has changed very little, the water used by the distillery continues to be extracted from springs and rivers that descend from Knockandy Hill, a mountain 460 meters high above sea level near the distillery.
The Ardmore distillery is characterized by making disturbed and smoked whiskeys, linked to the lands, fauna and people of the Highlands, an atypical combination, since when one thinks of peat automatically it relates it to Islay. < / p>
Signatory Vintage dates from 1988, founded by Andrew Symington in Edinburgh. Signatory's name derives from the fact that Andrew's initial intention was to find someone famous to sign the labels of the bottles produced to sell them more easily. The first whiskey that Signatory bought was a 1968 Glenlivet in Jerez barrel, the whiskey was sold before they could find a famous person, leaving the name of Signatory, a signatory in Spanish.
The Un-Chillfiltered Collection: Cold distillation is a process that is used to remove fats and oils found naturally in malt. Large distilleries use it to present a clean and transparent product and homogenize the final product. In the case of Signatory, when all the whiskey of the same barrel proceeds, the need disappears to have to maintain the same appearance and flavor since everything comes from the same place, giving more importance to the natural flavors coming from the malt and the body and texture of whiskey.
