The Dititllery Label Range

The history of this range heralds back to the very beginning of Gordon and MacPhails - to the days when distillery spirit was produced primarily to be used in blends. Because of the strong working relationships they had with distillery owners, they were allowed to bottle and sell the spirit they created as single malt on the condition that we used their 'house' label with the caption "bottled by Gordon & MacPhail".

These relationships have culminated in today's 'Distillery Labels' - a showcase of historical label design.


Speyside

All Speyside whiskies are Highland whiskies; but, not all Highland malts are Speysiders. What is the difference, why the distinction of the Speyside region? The answer is quite simply the River Spey. From its source in the Cairngorms National Park, the river meanders 107 miles, disgorging into the Moray Firth at Spey Bay. Speyside, located in the middle of the Highland region, is also considered by many the heartland of Scotch production. Today, more than half of Scotland’s working distilleries are located in this region.

Geographically, Speyside encompasses the area east and west of the River Spey, partly in tandem with the Morayshire county lines. There are several key towns in region. Forres, to the east, is home to Benromach Distillery and a short drive from Dallas Dhu, a mothballed distillery now transformed into a visitor destination. Westerly are the distilleries of Strathisla, Strathmill, Glen Keith, and Aultmore, all located in Keith. Centrally situated areGordon and MacPhail’s shop, offices, and warehouses in the Royal Burgh of Elgin, also known for its mediaeval cathedral ruins.


Along the River Spey, as world-renowned for its salmon fishing as its whisky distilleries, lie the whisky towns of Rothes, Craigellachie, and Dufftown: combined these house the Speyside Cooperage and thirteen distilleries, including Glen Grant and Mortlach.

With a variety and depth of flavours to experience, explore the diversity of Speyside throughout our ranges. Journey from the lesser known distilleries in the ‘Connoisseurs Choice’ range to the exceptionally well-matured malts in the ‘Rare Vintage’ range.


Glentauchers

Established in 1897, Glentauchers was one of the distilleries owned by the hugely successful blender James Buchanan and the design was overseen by the legendary Charles Doig, who contributed so much to the innovation and future success of Scotch whisky.  

Glentauchers was also amongst those distilleries who utilised the emerging rail network around Scotland, building its own specific railway sidings into the distillery.


Taste with water

NOSE: Aroma Dry meadow grasses mix with beeswax polish aromas. Sweetness evolves with time: white chocolate and vanilla pod mingles with fresh pear and green apple.
