The MacPhail's Collection
This range was discontinued in the spring of 2018.
The whiskies previously bottled under this range will now be released under the brand-new 'Discovery' range, available in late spring 2018, as well as the refreshed 'Connoisseurs Choice' range.
Below you will find historical information about our retired 'The MacPhail's Collection' range.
At the very heart of our business lies the sample room; its contents, the sum of over a century of experience maturing and bottling the finest Scotch whisky. We regularly sample the contents of our casks to make sure they are maturing well, only bottling them for sale when we believe they are truly ready.
This approach to cask curation means we know exactly how spirit with a specific distillery character matures in different styles of oak. Using this knowledge, which has been handed down through four generations of the Urquhart family, we created 'The MacPhail's Collection': a selection of seven unique distilleries from across Scotland; providing the perfect starting point for a spirited journey to discovering the outstanding diverse flavours of single malt Scotch whisky.
Located in Scotland’s key whisky-making regions, this broad assortment includes the highly characteristic island distilleries of Bunnahabhain on Islay and Highland Park on Orkney. The pair are complemented by Pulteney and Glenturret, respectively from the North and South of the Highlands, alongside Tamdhu and Glenrothes, both situated in Speyside. The collection concludes with the addition of a rare malt from the Glen Scotia Distillery in the Campbeltown region.
The seven distilleries scattered across Scotland which make up 'The MacPhail's Collection' each produce their own unique style of whisky. When we know it is ready, we bottle it at 43% ABV making sure each release carries either an age statement or a vintage.
