Gordon and MacPhail Private Collection 4 x 70cl / includes Press Samples

The following lot is for an extraordinary collection of decanters from Scottish independent bottler, Gordon and MacPhail.

Gordon & MacPhail are one of the largest and most recognisable whisky companies in the world. Although they began distilling at the newly refurbished Benromach distillery in 1998, for most of their history they were an independent bottler. Their labels are recognised by whisky lovers the world over, and their licensed bottlings from distillery's like Macallan and Talisker in the 1970s and 1980s, when the companies were not bottling themselves, are a huge part of the success of those distillers today.

Released in extremely small numbers, these beautiful decanters contain some of the rarest stock in the company’s portfolio. Each is displayed in a well-crafted wooden box and is accompanied by a book which details each of the whiskies. The design of each box is a tribute to the river Tay, as is the gold detailing on each bottle. The boxes are also crafted from  different types of wood, all locally sourced from the Tayside area.

  • Longmorn 1961 Single Cask #508 & #512 Press Pack Samples 40.8%-45.0% 1cl x 2
