FAQs (Bottle)

1. What is an Independent Bottler?

When it comes to whisky and rum, there are two mains types of bottles available on the market – Original Bottler/Bottling (OB) and Independent Bottler/Bottling (IB). OBs are whiskies/rums that have been distilled, matured, bottled and released by the distillery themselves. IBs are whiskies/rums that have been sourced, selected and bottled by independent companies to be sold under their own label. There are several IBs (such as Cadenhead, Gordon & Macphail, Signatory Vintages, SMWS etc). But Blackadder is one of the few IBs that have the ability to source for whisky casks from various hard to acquire and closed distilleries such as as Chichibu (Japan) and Glen Esk (closed distillery).
