A rich and varied past
St. Magdalene was initially known as Linlithgow Distillery, before a merger with Bonnytoun Farm Distillery in 1826 led to a renaming. The distillery was built on the lands of St. Magdalene's Cross Convent, although today all that remains is the malting barn and kiln.
Laid down on 1 July 1982, a year before the distillery closed its doors for the last time, Gordon & MacPhail 1982 from St. Magdalene was bottled at 53% ABV on 21 March 2019. With a vibrant golden hue, this whisky has hints of cracked black pepper and candied tropical fruits on the palate that lead into a light and delicate finish, with subtle hints of toasted malt.
