A Toast to Gordon & MacPhail's Whisky Heritage

A Toast to Gordon & MacPhail's Whisky Heritage
In 1895, Gordon & MacPhail began as a grocery venture with a global focus, sourcing an array of provisions like tea, coffee, and whisky. Influenced by the diverse flavours they discovered, James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail were inspired to highlight the exceptional whiskies found in the Speyside region. This marked the inception of their journey into the world of fine spirits.
 
For over a century and a quarter, Gordon & MacPhail has devoted itself to the artistry of whisky creation, crafting intricately nuanced single malt whiskies. At the core of their philosophy is the conviction that the essence of whisky lies in the influence of wood. They emphasise the pivotal role of the interaction between the spirit and the wood, considering it the crucial step in the maturation journey.
 
Gordon & MacPhail's legacy, spanning over 125 years, reflects a profound dedication to the intricate craft of whisky making. From their origins as global purveyors of diverse provisions to their pivotal role in spotlighting exceptional whiskies, the journey has been one of passion and expertise. Today, their beautifully complex single malt whiskies testify to the belief that the interplay between spirit and wood is the true alchemy of maturation. Explore the latest expressions from their Private Collection and Connoisseurs Choice ranges, and savour the culmination of over a century of commitment to the art of fine spirits.
