SCOTLAND – since 1895
Gordon MacPhail are true legends among independent bottlers. Not only have they been around for over 120 years (as has their shop in Moray), they probably also preside over one of the largest (if not the largest) stock of Whisky among all independents. It is not the quantity that makes G&MP special, it is the quality of the Whisky they stock. So much so, that it is not uncommon for distilleries to buy back stock off them.
Being practically neighbours to Macallan they learned a thing or two from them and their Speymalt releases can easily compete with ‘the original’ despite a much lower price-tag. Other noteworthy releases include their Rare Old bottlings of silent distilleries (plus others), their ‘Private Collection’, and their special decanter releases showcasing a number of Glenlivets, Macallans, or Mortlachs from the 30s all the way to the 80s. Those are among the oldest and most collectible drams on the planet. G&MP cater for all pockets and their Connoisseurs’ Choice or Cask Strength collections are immensely popular.
In addition to their role as independent bottlers G&MP have also been operating the Benromach distillery in Forres since 1993.
