Tastings at Gordon & MacPhail South Street
A Taste of Moray - £30.00
For over 120 years and through four generations of family ownership, we have built longstanding relationships with many of Speyside’s distilleries, matching spirit to our own bespoke casks to create single malt Scotch whisky of exceptional quality. Celebrating Speyside, this tasting will comprise of single malts from five distilleries local to Elgin, the spiritual home of Gordon & MacPhail, and will span our Distillery Labels, Discovery and Connoisseurs Choice ranges.
Discover Scotland - £40.00
For more than a century, we have been entrusted with new-make spirit from more than 100 Scottish distilleries to mature in our casks, our way. This special tasting, that includes whisky from our Distillery Labels and Connoisseurs Choice ranges, highlights little-known distilleries and celebrates those that remain largely unseen in the single malt world.
The Connoisseurs Choice Tasting - £55.00
Created in 1968 by whisky visionary, ‘Mr George’ Urquhart, the Connoisseurs Choice range features rare single cask and small batch expressions that are always non-chill-filtered and natural colour. Discover the depth and breadth of whiskies available in the Connoisseurs Choice range, enjoying five whiskies selected from different cask types, bottling strengths and age statements.
Vintage & Rare - £85.00
Leaving a cask to reach its full potential, undeterred by demand of necessity, is a long held, unnegotiable Gordon & MacPhail mantra. We only release a whisky when a century of experience determines it is right to do so. In this tasting you will savour a selection of our most exclusive whiskies aged for a minimum of 20 years, each an exquisite chapter of Scotland’s liquid history.
