For over one hundred and twenty years, independent bottlers Gordon & MacPhail have carefully matched spirit with oak. This interaction is the key point in the maturation process, where oak cradles the spirit until it is ready to be released as single malt Scotch whisky. They have learned from their vast experience that the wood makes the whisky.
Managing a portfolio of casks is a complex business. Gordon & MacPhail have honed their expertise over generations allowing them to fully understand how the different styles of spirit, produced by Scotland’s individual distilleries, mature in cask.
It is this cask curation that allows Gordon & MacPhail to consistently deliver a wide range of perfectly matured whiskies. Their maturation management ensures the creation of complex, balanced and subtle single malts, which will only carry the Gordon & MacPhail name when ready.
