Signatory was founded by Andrew Symington in 1999. After discovering single cask single malt whisky while managing Prestonfield House Hotel, Andrew bought his first cask, a Glenlivet 1968, and is now one of the largest independent bottlers in Scotland. As of 2002, Signatory Vintage Whisky company is also the owner of the Edradour distillery.

This expression was distilled at Port Ellen, which is for many THE Islay malt, it has attained near cult status since the distillery was mothballed in 1983. The stills were shipped abroad in the early 1990s and the distillery was demolished shortly after. The warehouse is still there, allowing Diageo and independent bottlers to keep releasing bottles from an ever dwindling stock.
