|Gordon & Macphail
|The family owned firm of Gordon and MacPhail is the World’s Leading Malt Whisky Specialist with 110 years experience in maturing and bottling single malt whiskies.
Gordon & MacPhail’s retail shop opened on Tuesday the 24th of May 1895, promising to provide their customers with 'the utmost satisfaction' and guaranteeing 'a superior article at a popular price'. The original business combined groceries with wines and spirits, but from the outset there was a strong leaning towards whisky.
The opening of the retail shop laid the foundations for a business that today offers more than 450 presentations of own-bottled single malts, to consumers throughout the world.
In 1998 Gordon & MacPhail became distillers in their own right after restarting production at Benromach distillery in Forres.
In 2003, they were awarded the Royal Highland & Agricultural Society of Scotland (RHASS) Lifetime Achievement Award in recognition of their contribution to the Scotch Whisky industry.
