About Gordon & MacPhail Products
Gordon and MacPhail bottles over 300 expressions of single malt Scotch Whisky from distilleries throughout Scotland. Their long established relationships with distillery owners throughout the country allows them 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 the highest quality standards. Only then are they bottled and presented for sale.
The Gordon & MacPhail Distillery
Located on the outskirts of the ancient market town of Forres lies Benromach Distillery. From a small and almost lost distillery emerged a single malt with distinctive qualities reflecting its hand made credentials as well as encapsulating the self-reliance, sophistication and modern values of Scotland today. Established in 1898, the distillery experienced many closures and changes in ownership prior to 1993, when malt whisky specialists, Gordon & MacPhail rescued it. Following an extensive reinstallation project, embracing the distillery’s original character, Benromach was officially re-opened by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1998.
