Gordon & MacPhail
Gordon and MacPhail bottles over 300 expressions of single malt Scotch Whisky from distilleries throughout Scotland. Our long-established relationships with distillery owners throughout the country allow us to send our oak casks to the majority of Scotland’s working distilleries to be filled with ‘new make’ spirit, which then matures for many years at the distillery of origin or in our bonded warehouses in Elgin. The oak casks are carefully stowed and regularly checked until they finally achieve our highest quality standards. Only then are they bottled and presented for sale. Our philosophy for maturing, selecting and bottling, ensures that we strive to produce the highest quality whiskies. Our filling policy allows us to specially select casks to complement the unique character of whisky we fill into them. Our sherry casks are made in Spain, seasoned for a number of years and finally when they are ready, are brought to Scotland.
We source ex-bourbon casks from selected distilleries in Kentucky, and other specialist wine casks from throughout the world.
The wood makes the whisky.
For over one hundred and twenty years we have carefully matched spirit with oak. This interaction is the key point in the maturation process, where oak cradles spirit until it is ready to be released as single malt Scotch whisky. We have learned from our vast experience that the wood makes the whisky.
Managing a portfolio of casks is a complex business. We have honed our expertise over generations allowing us to fully understand how the different styles of spirit produced by Scotland’s individual distilleries mature in cask.
Our skilfully coopered casks, which have previously held bourbon or Sherry, deliver a full spectrum of flavor compounds: from sweet, vanilla and tropical fruit notes, to rich toffee, dark chocolate, and spice notes. The array of flavors derived from wood is abundant across our portfolio with each whisky demonstrating its own unique flavor profile reflecting both the distillery character and the cask type.
Born from not just bottling whisky, but maturing it; understanding the cask from inside out. Welcome to our family of whiskies where each bottle plays a vital role and where the flavor is key.
Connoisseurs Choice: These single cask and small batch expressions are genuine one-offs. Every bottle tells its life story through its label: cask type, bottling date, strength, vintage, and tasting note. Always non-chill-filtered and bottled at natural color. The single malt enthusiast will relish in the small details.
Discovery: As an introduction to our portfolio, Discovery is curated to offer an utterly dependable and consistent choice of our finest single malt whiskies. Each expression sits within the bold flavor profiles of either ‘Sherry’, ‘Smoky’, or ‘Bourbon’, making these single malts the perfect match for the whisky-lover who enjoys exploration through flavor and character.
