Gordon & MacPhail has almost legendary status in the world of Scotch whisky, with four generations of the Urquhart family heading up the business from its base in Elgin. At the heart of Gordon & MacPhail are its retail premises on South Street, which combine a delicatessen and wine merchant operation with The Whisky Room, where more than 1,000 malt whiskies are for sale. The family also owns and operates Benromach Distillery in Speyside.
Founded in 1823, this Speysider was the playground for George Cowie – and after that, Alexander Cowie, who pioneered the distillery’s famed technique of ‘2.81 times distillation’, rather than the traditional method of double distillation, which is still in practice today: resulting in a spirit full of character and power.
Mortlach continues to be one of the region’s most mysterious distilleries and will no doubt retain its cult status for many years to come. Known as the ‘Beast of Dufftown’, the whisky is legendary robust. So much so that the Generations 75-year-old came from this distillery, a feat only achievable when great casks and great spirit are truly well matched.

Tasting Notes from the Master of Malt:
Nose: Soft sherry sweetness, backed up by vanilla-y malt and stewed pear.
Palate: Slightly grassy and spicy at first, but soon enough the rich sherried notes return.
Finish: Waxy orange, cinnamon, and new leather.
