Gordon & MacPhail is an independent, family-owned Scotch whisky specialist which has been based in Elgin, Moray, since 1895. Four generations of the Urquhart family have continued the tradition of seeking out the best and rarest Scotch whiskies.
Our long established relationships with distillery owners throughout the country allows us to send our oak casks to the majority of Scotland’s working distilleries to be filled with ‘new make’ spirit, which then mature 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. Loving care in every aspect of bringing our products to market ensures that every bottle carrying the G&M mark is simply as good as it can be.
