Ben Nevis 8 Years Old Signatory Vintage 2014-2022 is a limited-edition Ben Nevis single malt brought to us by independent bottler Signatory Vintage. The whisky was distilled in December 2014 and matured for 8 years in second-fill Oloroso sherry butts. It was bottled in December 2022 at 43%. The Ben Nevis distillery was founded in 1825 by Angus McDonnell, and was taken over a couple of years later by ‘Long John’ McDonald. He got this nickname thanks to his extraordinary height: 1.93m (or 6’4). Quite a feat in the early 19th century! After his death in 1856, the distillery came into the hands of his son, Donald McDonald. Under his leadership, the Ben Nevis distillery became a giant in the whisky world (pun intended).
