AWARDS HONOUR FOR GORDON & MACPHAIL’S RARE VINTAGE GLEN GRANT 1966

Gordon & MacPhail’s Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1966 40% was awarded “Independent Bottling of the Year” and “Readers’ Choice” at this year’s Scottish Field Whisky Challenge 2016.

The Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1966 40% won the Readers’ Choice, after a panel of 10 readers blind-tasted over 50 Scotch whiskies. The panel of readers described the whisky as ‘a breath of fresh air’.

The Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1966 40% has sweet vanilla aromas with a hint of rich baked fruits, and a lingering almond flavour. Without water, the malt has green, leafy flavours with fruity, rhubarb notes and a trace of walnut. Adding a splash of water brings out a subtle ashy flavour, with a melon and burnt raisin edge.

Stephen Rankin, Director and a member of the Urquhart family, which owns Gordon & MacPhail, said:

“Since 1895 Gordon & MacPhail has sent casks to distilleries throughout Scotland and filled them with new-make spirit. We take great care in nurturing and maturing our whiskies in order to provide high quality single malts for whisky lovers across the world, and these recent awards are testament to this dedication.”

“This commitment of expertly matching wood and spirit has been passed down through four generations of the Urquhart family, and the results of this approach can be tasted in each and every whisky Gordon & MacPhail produces.”

Having developed relationships with distilleries across Scotland since the early days of the business, Gordon & MacPhail approached the various owners, seeking permission to bottle specially selected casks to provide consumers with an exclusive vintage.

For single malt lovers and those interested in the history of Scotch whisky label design, the labels of the Gordon & MacPhail Rare Vintage range have a familiar look: many are based on the original distillery labels, testament to the relationship between the whisky specialist and the distilleries.

With a selection of malts spanning from 1936 to 1986, it’s the ultimate range of whiskies for those looking to mark a milestone with an extra-special dram. Today, these trusted relationships with distillers enable Gordon & MacPhail to bottle exclusive vintages of single malt at various strengths, all with their unique distillery label.
