Edradour distillery was established in 1825 and its name can be translated from Gaelic as “between two rivers”. It is the smallest distillery in Scotland and has one wash still and one spirit still. If the still were any smaller, they would be classified as portable stills. The distillery is currently owned by Signatory, independent bottler.
The Signatory company was founded in 1988. It is a family owned and managed company, being one of only three true independent bottlers. They always like to draw a distinction between the independent companies who bottle their own products, and the independent companies whose products are bottled under contract. The other fully independent bottlers are: Gordon & MacPhail and Wm. Cadenhead.
The name of Signatory derived from the fact that their initial intention was to find someone famous to sign the labels for bottles produced from one single cask. The first cask we purchased was a cask of 1968 Glenlivet, which was sold long before they could find a famous person.
Signatory owns the smallest distillery from Scotland, Edradour since 22 july 2002.
Due to no chillfiltration this is both more full bodied and full flavoured. This whisky may turn cloudy when stored in a cool place but does not affect the flavour in any way.
Palate: Red berry fruits, spiced sultanas, maple syrup and almonds combine deliciously. A hint of Dolly Mixtures. The presence of fine oak Oloroso casks provide a backdrop of great depth and fullness. The rich mouth feel that comes from the smallest traditional stills in Scotland is even more apparent
