The wood makes the whisky
A good cask is one that delivers what you want it to deliver.
“We know the casks from inside out”
For over one hundred and twenty years we have carefully matched spirit with oak. This interaction is the key point in the maturation process, where oak cradles spirit until it is ready to be released as single malt Scotch whisky. We have learned from our vast experience that the wood makes the whisky.
Managing a portfolio of casks is a complex business. We have honed our expertise over generations allowing us to fully understand how the different styles of spirit produced by Scotland’s individual distilleries matures in cask.
It is this cask curation that allows us to consistently deliver our range of perfectly matured whiskies. Our maturation management creates complex, balanced and subtle single malts, which will only carry the Gordon & MacPhail name when ready.
