product Details

Glenesk 1971 Signatory Vintage 29 Year Old 75cl / US Import

Known as Glenesk from 1980-85, and prior to that as Hillside since 1964, this distillery produced both malt and grain at different stages in its history. It is not often seen officially bottled, but has contributed to several Rare Malt releases. Distilling ceased there entirely in 1985, and the site operates exclusively as a maltings now. 

This is a Hillside era single malt, although labelled here by Signatory Vintage under the more recent name, Glenesk. Distilled in 1971 and bottled from a single cask after 29 years.

Signatory Vintage were established in 1988 by Andrew Symington and are one of Scotland's most prolific independent bottlers. Their offices and bottling facility are located next to Edradour distillery, which they have also owned since 2002.
