In the mid-1960s Gordon & MacPhail took the unprecedented step of launching a range of single malts under the brand name 'Connoisseurs Choice'. Until this time, many of the whiskies the range featured would not have been available as single malt. Today, Connoisseurs Choice retains this exclusive nature with a range of rare and sought after single malts from distilleries throughout Scotland.
For many years Gordon & MacPhail have sourced spirit from a wide variety of Scottish distillers -overseeing the maturation of these whiskies until they are suited for bottling. For the majority, 8 to 21 years maturity is befitting. However, for the select few of exceptional quality - these are left to slumber for a longer time, producing very rare vintage whisky. These are truly something special.
In partnership with each respective distillery, all whiskies in our Distillery Labels range are uniquely labelled. In years gone by many of these unique designs were used 'officially' to bottle the whisky under license from the distillery. Today these trusted relationships with distillers enables Gordon & MacPhail to bottle whiskies at various ages, strengths and vintages - all with their unique distillery label.
Speymalt from Macallan
Gordon & MacPhail bottles a series of single malt whiskies from one of the world's most famous distilleries – Macallan. Established in 1824 the distillery overlooks some of the finest fishing beats on the River Spey.
As the name suggests, this is a range of high strength single malt whiskies from distilleries across Scotland. Bottled at natural cask strength and colour directly from oak casks without chill filtering, the highly individual label on each bottle indicates the cask number and the bottling date, along with the distillation year and strength.
Private Collection is a range of single malt whiskies personally selected by the Directors of Gordon & MacPhail. Each is of exceptional age and rarity, and of outstanding character and quality.
The MacPhail's Collection
The MacPhail's Collection is a small and exclusive range of fine single malt scotch whiskies from distilleries throughout Scotland.
Many of the Single Malt Whiskies in Gordon & MacPhail's Rare Old range will never be seen again. They are whiskies from another era - some are from distilleries no longer in operation, others from distilleries that no longer exist.
MacPhail's The Malt
MacPhail's single malt is distilled to our order and then matured in our own casks either at its place of birth or in our warehouse in Elgin. The distillery of origin is a closely guarded secret giving the fine malt an air of mystery. It is full bodied, complex and graceful. Mellowed by age and ennobled by pedigree.
Inspired by an ancient Highland recipe, the award winning Dunkeld Atholl Brose is a delicious boutique liqueur that captures the best natural flavours of Scotland. A luxurious golden blend of single malt whisky, honey and carefully-selected herbs, Dunkeld Atholl Brose is a unique product steeped in Scottish history.
