Since 1895...

We have grown since our humble beginnings in 1895 into an internationally renowned malt maturation expert, retailer, UK wholesaler, and distiller.

Established as a grocery business in 1895 by James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail used their centrical and commodious premises' to showcase local produce and curate exotic commodities from around the world. 

From an eponymously named South Street retail shop, we have expanded into a multi-faceted international business: retailer, specialist UK wholesaler, international trade partner, distiller, and of course, single malt maturation experts.
