Famous and influential Italian importer and bottler of Scotch whisky and rum.
High Spirits Profile
High Spirits is an Italian independent bottler owned by Ferdinando (Nadi) Fiori, which specialises in single cask single malts bottled at cask strength. The company is noted for the artistic style of its labels and packaging – a typical characteristic of several Italian bottlers – in particular its Scottish Colourist, Sails In The Wind and Lochs And Castles Of Scotland ranges, as well as the more surreal Life Is A Circus series.
High Spirits also bottled whiskies selected by renowned Italian collector Valentino Zagatti, bottled to celebrate Zagatti’s 50th anniversary of whisky collecting in 2008.
Many of the company’s early bottlings are now quite rare.
High Spirits History
High Spirits emerged in 1999 from the dissolution of Italian alcohol importer Intertrade, which was also founded by Fiori in the 1980s.
It continues to bottle whiskies although the number of releases has slowed. The majority of recent bottlings have been single malts distilled at Bruichladdich distillery, and held by private cask owners.
