History of Independent Bottler Gordon & MacPhail

Gordon & MacPhail is an emerging Scottish wine and spirits retailer with a long and impressive history. In 1895, James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail founded the company in Elgin, Scotland. Initially Gordon & MacPhail dealt primarily with tea and food, but the focus soon shifted to selling wine and spirits.

The company quickly made a name for itself as a retailer of fine Scottish whiskey. In 1930 the owners decided to expand the business by bottling their own whiskey. This move proved very successful and Gordon & MacPhail became the first independent bottler of whiskey in Scotland.

In the following years they carefully expanded their range of whiskeys by purchasing barrels from various distilleries and letting them mature in their warehouses. Today the company has one of the largest collections of single malt whiskeys in the world. Through their passion for this Scottish specialty, Gordon & MacPhail have been able to create a range of very rare, high quality whiskeys that are sought after by many collectors.
