Arguably the most famous independent bottler of Scotch whisky there is. Gordon & MacPhail was founded in Elgin in 1895 by James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail. It is now owned by the Urquhart Family who have bow bottled over 350 different expressions from around 69 different distilleries. Gordon & MacPhail is the Trading name of Speymalt Whiskies while also owning the Benromach distillery, which they purchased in 1993. Some of the brands include Connoisseurs Choice, Cask Strength, Rare Old and Speymalt.
This expression from the closed distillery on Islay was distilled in 1979 and bottled in 1995. Diago has exciting plans to reopen this distillery in the near future but until then you can sample this wonderful connoisseur choice bottling from Gordon and Macphail.
