product Details

Old Elgin 1938 Gordon and MacPhail 46 Year Old 'Book of Kells'

Gordon & MacPhail is an Elgin-based family run business, established in 1895 and owned by the Urquhart family. They are perhaps best known for their independent bottlings of single malt, such as the instantly recognisable Connoisseurs Choice brand, and increasingly as distillers in their own right, having acquired Benromach distillery in 1993. The company also has a stake in the blending business though, and has produced a number of well-regarded products over the years. 

Old Elgin is a blended malt, named after the home of Gordon & macPahil, and the largest town in Speyside.

This was produced from a vatting of 1938 vintages, and bottled after 46 years.

Part of their iconic Book of Kells packaging, bearing label art based on the mediaeval, illuminated manuscript for which the series is named.
