In 1968, Samaroli founded one of the earliest independent bottlers under his own name and was the first Non-English & Non-Scottish person to do so. During this time period, one needs to be reminded that single malts were a rarity in the world of blended whisky. Therefore, it is even more rare to bottle a single-single (Single Malt & Single Cask) which is what he did very early on.
Slivano Samaroli does not believe in bending or following the market but strives to create product of quality and character. Some would call him unorthodox while others would call this visionary. Silvano Samaroli is a legend among independent bottlers.
