Connoisseurs Choice

Created in 1968 by whisky visionary, Mr George Urquhart, the 'Connoisseurs Choice' range has featured more than 2,000 bottlings from almost 100 Scottish distilleries.

The unique story of each 'Connoisseurs Choice' whisky is told through its label: cask type, bottling date, strength, vintage and tasting note.

Undaunted Spirit

Referred to by whisky writer Charlie MacLean as ‘the father of single malt’, George Urquhart is widely acknowledged to be one of our industry’s true pioneers. In 1968, when the vast majority of spirit went to make blended whisky, George created the Connoisseurs Choice to provide little-known distilleries a platform to have their whisky enjoyed in its simplest form, as a single malt.

A master of maturation, Mr George was instrumental to the growth and international success of Scotch whisky, particularly single malts.
