The family owned company of Gordon & MacPhail has been successfully working in the whisky business since 1895. It has got single malt from more than 100 Scottish distilleries in its stock. Carefully selected casks of Gordon & MacPhail were filled with new spirit in those distilleries and matured into (predominantly own) warehouses for maturation. So the company can draw on a wide aromatic range of single malts for its Discovery Range – and the other series that will make up the Gordon & MacPhail portfolio.
