We manufacture drams, dram sets and independent bottlings from That Boutique-y Whisky Company, among many others.
We use factual statements to describe the source of the whisky or other contents of those products. For example, if we bottled a delicious single cask distilled at the outstanding Aberlour distillery then we would say exactly that. In that instance we would not be asserting any ownership of, or other rights in, the trademark "Aberlour", which we do not own.
The same goes for drams – the label describes the bottle we opened and decanted into drams, so a dram with "Glenfarclas 40" on it indicates that we opened up a sealed bottle of rich, dark, Christmassy Glenfarclas 40 Year Old and carefully decanted it into clean food-safe containers in a food-safe environment.
Any defects introduced by our manufacturing processes (bottling, re-bottling, dramming, labelling, waxing, etc) are not the responsibility of the third party which produces any whisky (or other raw material) which we have used.
On our website, all whiskies (and other spirits), including independently-bottled products, appear according to the following naming convention: [Distillery name] [Age] [Batch] [Year] [cask number] [range] [(independent bottler)].
