Gordon & MacPhail launch rare Glen Grant collection

Since the founding of the business, Gordon & MacPhail has sent casks to distilleries throughout Scotland to be filled with new make spirit, before being matured under the custodianship of generations of the Urquhart family. Developing relationships with distilleries across Scotland throughout the company’s history, the whiskies in Gordon & MacPhail’s Glen Grant Collection are uniquely labelled using the original distillery labels.

Included in the collection are two award winning whiskies. The Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1954, which won a double gold award at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2017 and a gold medal in the International Spirits Challenge 2017, and The Rare Vintage Glen Grant 1952, which was recognised by Jim Murray in 2017 with the accolade for best Single Malt 41 Years & Over.

Commenting on the news, Stephen Rankin, Director and member of the fourth generation of the Urquhart family, who own Gordon & MacPhail, said: “By creating this collection, we have captured a unique piece of Scotland’s liquid history, bringing together a combined 353 years of knowledge, expertise, and whisky maturation. With six whiskies aged between 57 and 61 years old, this collection is a testament to the company’s ability to nurture aged expressions.”

The Gordon & MacPhail Glen Grant Collection, will be available later this month from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £9,995.
