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.


Closer to home

Less than two miles outside Forres, Dallas Dhu was one of the westernmost Speyside distilleries. Closed in 1983, the distillery was designed by famed architect Charles Doig, who also designed the Gordon & MacPhail retail shop in Elgin.

Matured in a refill Sherry hogshead cask no. 1656 on 10 June 1969, Gordon & MacPhail 1969 from Dallas Dhu Distillery offers delicious flavours of sweet toffee apples on the palate, complemented by a hint of roasted coffee beans on the finish.
