Over 120 years in the making
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.
For more than 120 years, our Speyside family business has carved out a unique niche for itself in the Scotch malt whisky market as experts in the understanding of matching the cask to spirit.
The wood makes the whisky
Our spiritual home
Proudly trading since 1895, the Elgin South Street retail shop is the genesis of the company today.
Our exceptional single malt Scotch whiskies are enjoyed around the world.
In 1998, the company fulfilled a long held family ambition to open and operate their own distillery, Benromach.
