Gordon & MacPhail expands Private Collection

Gordon & MacPhail has released two new additions to its Private Collection range: A 64-years-old single malt from Glenlivet Distillery and a 50-years-old from Caol Ila Distillery.

Gordon & MacPhail 1968 from Caol Ila Distillery was matured in a refill sherry hogshead and bottled at a cask strength of 52.5% ABV. Available at a UK RRP of £7,500, only 199 decanters of this single malt are available worldwide.

The Gordon & MacPhail 1954 from Glenlivet Distillery matured in Cask 1412, a  refill Sherry butt, the 64-year-old malt was bottled at a cask strength of 41.0% ABV. Only 222 bottles are available globally, at a UK RRP of £9,950.

These rare single malts were selected for bottling by Stuart Urquhart, Gordon & MacPhail’s associate director of Whisky Supply and member of the fourth generation of the Urquhart family. Presented in hand-blown crystal decanters, each whisky is encased within a handmade wooden veneer box.

Stephen Rankin, director of Prestige and fourth generation member of the Urquhart family, says: “Our Private Collection range allows discerning whisky enthusiasts the opportunity to enjoy some of the oldest and rarest single malts in the world. These latest releases epitomise the expertise and commitment that has gone into pairing spirit and cask over 123 years and four generations of the Urquhart family. Thanks to the foresight of my forefathers, we have one of the most extensive single malt whisky libraries in the world, with expressions from over 100 Scottish distilleries.”

The latest ‘Private Collection’ releases will be available to purchase from specialist whisky retailers.
