INDEPENDENT BOTTLINGS
With their exciting and diverse offering, independent
bottling companies have long held a significant
presence within Scotland’s whisky industry, with the
first known company, Wm. Cadenhead, established
in 1842 and many more following thereafter.
Renowned for the high quality of their releases
these companies are free to select and bottle a wide
range of rare, unusual and interesting whiskies.
With factors like ageing and cask finish at their
discretion an independent bottler can provide
an interesting alternative to standard distillery
bottlings. Throughout the twentieth century when
the whisky industry was focused on producing
70
mainly blends - it was the independent bottlers that
sought out and bottled single malt, preserving some
of the most incredible vintages for us to experience
and appreciate today. Not only this they also offer an
excellent way to explore many of Scotland’s closed
distilleries, whose stock would have otherwise
disappeared.
It is clear that the independent bottling company
has long been the champion of Scotch whisky in
all its diversity and this is beautifully represented by
the stunning selection available within The Perfect
Collection.
