Dr. Bill, the visionary Director of Whisky Creation, drew inspiration from Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee to conceive Signet—a whisky of unparalleled depth. Crafted over years, it embodies his visionary spirals of mocha flavours. Distilled once annually in towering stills, its espresso-like intensity infuses our Distillery with the essence of an Italian coffee bar. Through meticulous aging in select casks—Bourbon for creaminess, Sherry for sweetness, and virgin charred oak for spice—blended with our oldest whisky, Signet emerges as a velvety explosion of flavour. Bitter mocha bursts intertwine with sizzling spice and waves of dark chocolate, harmonised by smooth butterscotch. Its aroma is a symphony of coffee, ginger, and cinnamon intertwining with dark chocolate, tiramisu, dark toffee, crystallised orange peel, and rich fruit cake. The finish is an exquisite blend of mocha, cappuccino, amaretto, chocolate-coated raisins, and orange. Signet redefines whisky, offering an experience like no other.
