Samaroli is an Italian independent bottling company, with a focus on bottling exceptional Scotch whisky and Caribbean rums; Samaroli does not own any distilleries. The company was founded by the late Silvano Samaroli in Rome in 1968, and was one of the first dedicated bottlers to actively promote cask strength whisky. The first series, a set of Cadenhead bottlings, was released in 1979.
During the early 1980s Samaroli began to source more individual releases directly from Cadenhead, and more cask strength bottlings started to appear. In 2008 the day-to-day running of the company was taken over from Silvano Samaroli by Antonio Bleve.
Samaroli holds the belief that independent bottlers should add their own value, and they ensure this through re-casking their whisky into virgin oak casks to add individuality. The striking artistry of their labels is iconic, straying far from traditional whisky labels, with the much-loved line on the rear labels: ‘Further matures in its bottle’.
