A single cask Edradour (#8) distilled in 2008 and bottled at cask strength in 2018 by Signatory Vintage, matured in a first-fill sherry cask. 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 515 bottles for La Maison du Whisky.

The distillery Edradour

Scotland, Southern Highlands. Distillery operational. Owner: Signatory Vintage & Co

After 70 years in the hands of American (J.G. Turney & Sons) and French (Pernod Ricard) owners, Scotland's smallest distillery reclaimed its independence and became 100% Scottish once again on 22 July 2002. Until this point, its entire production was absorbed by the group's blends, Clan Campbell, House of Lord and King Ransom. A 10 year old version was nonetheless released in 1986. Things remained this way until 2002 when, like many distilleries enjoying rediscovered independence and under the aegis of Andrew Symington (owner of Signatory Vintage), Edradour underwent an incredible transformation that enabled it to reveal the complexity of its profile. Coming under the watchful eye of the former manager of Laphroaig, Ian Henderson, who for was for a time Edradour's master distiller, peat became second nature and the distillery began producing a second malt named Ballechin.
