product Details

Ben Wyvis 1968 Signatory Vintage 31 Year Old Decanter Gift Pack / Cask #687

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.

This is a 1968 vintage Ben Wyvis, bottled in 2000 exclusively from cask #687.

Ben Wyvis is one of the shortest-lived distilleries of the modern age, constructed within the Invergordon grain complex in 1965. Invergordon was built just four years earlier, and both were tasked with providing fillings for the Whyte & Mackay blend which was soaring in popularity at the time. Ben Wyvis was a malt distillery, producing an unpeated new make. The expanding distillery portfolio of Invergordon Distillers later that decade, including the building of Tamnavulin and acquisition of Bruichladdich, left Ben Wyvis surplus to requirements. It was demolished after just 11 years of production, and very few single malt bottlings have ever been produced.
