Established in 1895, Gordon & MacPhail are recognised as Scotland’s most famous independent bottler and distiller of Scotch Whisky. Located in Elgin in the north-east of Scotland it is a family business owned by the Urquhart Family.
For over 125 years – Gordon & MacPhail 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.
Gordon & MacPhail own rare stocks from the oldest and most prestigious casks in existence today and have fast become one the most collectable single malt whisky brands in the thriving secondary market.

“I am completely blown away! This is altogether an amazing and hugely rewarding whisky. What a find G&M have done you proud!
Although I have rarely encountered whiskies of such advanced age, I am generally skeptical about very old malts – they lose vitality and tend to become fragile and flat, generally owing to low strength. Not in this case!
I can honestly say this is one of the finest malts it has been my pleasure to taste in forty years of professional exploration. It is outstanding – rarely, if ever, have I been able to write so fulsome a testimonial!
I feel privileged to have been able to nose and taste this Glen Grant 1948.”
GLEN GRANT 1948 72YO TASTING NOTES BY CHARLES MACLEAN
GLENT GRANT DISTILLERY - SPEYSIDE - SCOTLAND
Established in 1840, Glen Grant is one of the top five bestselling Scotch single malt distilleries worldwide. Glen Grant is a Speyside distillery with real heritage – producing one of the first single malts to be bottled as such, thanks to a decades-long symbiotic relationship with local whisky bottler Gordon & MacPhail, who have been bottling Glen Grant since at least the 1930s.
This relationship continues to this day, with the Elgin-based independent bottler releasing a rare supply of malts that continue to confirm that Glen Grant is one of only a handful of Speyside distilleries (the others including Macallan, Mortlach and Glenfarclas) producing a spirit that is capable of withstanding up to and over half a century of ageing in sherry casks.
And so the Glen Grant story will continue, as long as there are people on Speyside with the skill and determination to maintain the standards and traditions of the Grant family and their descendants.
