“Independent Bottlers,” also referred to as I.B.'s buy casks of premade whiskey from distilleries and then age and bottle it themselves, determining when to sell it as well as how to label it (usually with the source distillery prominently displayed). Some IB’s specialize in oddities and rarities, some puts famous whiskeys on exotic barrels to age, others release only “cask-strength.”
Signatory is an independent bottler of rare Single Malts that would otherwise be lost to the blenders. These Malts are hard to come by, but offer a unique opportunity to taste rare offerings. Signatory selects their casks from large lots of the highest quality scotch. The balance of the casks are then sent back to the blenders. Light filtration ensures the 86 proof malts maintain their natural flavors. Signatory scotch is bottled as it comes from the cask to preserve the original flavor. Enjoy this rare collection of Malts!
