Cambus 1964 Signatory Vintage 31 Year Old

Cambus distillery was built in 1806 by John Moubray, on the site of an old mill in Alloa, and initially distilled whisky from malted barley. Production swapped to grain thirty years later, which was fully modernised in 1851 by the installation of a coffey still. Cambus became a founding member of DCL in 1877, who bottled its single grain for the first time in 1906 during a battle with malt distillers over the use of the term "whisky." Occasional runs of distillery bottlings continued to appear during the 20th century, but the distillery was sadly closed down in 1993 during a mass reorganising of their portfolio by its owners, United Distillers. The site now houses a Diageo cooperage, opened in 2011. Independent releases like this have often appeared over the years, and are increasingly sought after as the remaining stocks begin to thin.

This whisky was distilled on 31st December 1964 and laid to rest in single casks #25 & #26 for 31 years before being bottled in April 1996.

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.  

One of 448 bottles.
