A single cask hogshead Mosstowie (#12889) distilled in 1976 and bottled at cask strength in 2000 for La Maison du Whisky. Signatory Vintage was founded in 1988 by Andrew Symington, who previously worked at Prestonfield House, Edinburgh, where he would select casks specially for the hotel. In 2002, he bought the Edradour distillery in Pitlochry, in the Highlands of Scotland and moved Signatory Vintage vintage to the site, including the warehouses opposite the distillery. A limited edition of 390 bottles.

The distillery Mosstowie

A distillery within a distillery, Mosstowie was produced in Miltonduff’‘s Lomond still from 1964 to 1981. The Lomond stills were originally installed to enable the then owner Hiram Walker to produce a wider variety of whisky for blends like Ballantine’‘s. The project was never much of a success and was abandoned 17 years later. No official bottlings of the Mosstowie single malt were ever released and only a handful of independent bottlers were lucky enough to bottle these highly prized (and very rare) bottlings.
