DESCRIPTION

Die 1968 vom Whisky-Visionär "Mr. George" Urquhart ins Leben gerufene Connoisseurs Choice-Reihe umfasst inzwischen mehr als 2.000 Abfüllungen aus fast 100 schottischen Brennereien.

Diese seltenen, nicht kühlgefilterten Einzelfassabfüllungen und kleinen Chargen sind das Ergebnis des einzigartigen Know-hows von Gordon & MacPhail bei der Abstimmung von Spirituosen auf Eichenfässer, das seit vier Generationen in der gleichen Familie weitergegeben wird.

Diese Sonderabfüllung wurde in der heute bereits geschlossenen Brennerei Imperial im Jahr 1997 destilliert. Nur 143 Flaschen wurden im Februar 2023 aus dem Sherry Hogshead Nr. 4961 mit einer Fassstärke von 52,1% Alk. freigegeben.

  • Imperial - Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

    The Imperial Distillery, a now-closed whisky distillery, plays a special role in the history of Scottish whisky. Located in the heart of Speyside, Scotland's most famous whisky region, the Imperial Distillery was founded in 1897 and produced a variety of Single Malt Scotch Whiskys throughout its history.

    Despite its closure in 2013, the legacy of the Imperial Distillery lives on in the rare and sought-after whisky bottlings that originate from this historic distillery. With a flavor profile often containing notes of ripe fruits, honey, and oak wood, each sip of Imperial Whisky offers a connection to the past.

    The Imperial Distillery may be closed, but its whiskys live on and are now coveted collectibles. They provide whisky enthusiasts the opportunity to experience and enjoy a piece of whisky history.

    Gordon & MacPhail: A Guide to the Scottish Whisky Bottler with Tradition

    Gordon & MacPhail is one of the oldest and most prestigious independent whisky bottlers in Scotland, with origins dating back to 1895. Founded by James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail, the company remains family-owned, managed by the Urquhart family, and is headquartered in Elgin, in the heart of Speyside, a region famous for its whisky production.

    Over a Century of Whisky Expertise

    Over the years, Gordon & MacPhail has developed unique expertise in maturing whisky. The company is known for selecting exceptional casks and aging them to perfection in their own warehouses. Many of their whiskies mature for decades, some for over 30, 40, or even 50 years before bottling.

    A Diverse Portfolio

    Gordon & MacPhail's range includes various product lines such as 'Connoisseurs Choice', 'Private Collection', and 'Generations'. Each line features its own theme and style, ranging from young, vibrant bottlings to rare, decades-old whiskies. Notably, Gordon & MacPhail also offers whiskies from closed distilleries, providing connoisseurs the chance to experience historically significant single malts.

    Commitment to Sustainability and Innovation

    In addition to preserving tradition, Gordon & MacPhail places great emphasis on sustainability and the advancement of their production processes. The company has recently announced plans to gradually reduce its role as an independent bottler and focus more on producing its own distillates. This includes using whisky from their own distilleries like Benromach and The Cairn to enhance the quality and uniqueness of their products.

    For whisky enthusiasts, Gordon & MacPhail offer not just a tasting of top-quality malts but also a profound experience of Scottish whisky history, marked by the company's dedication and passion.
