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.

Scapa is “the other” Orkney Island distillery! Highland Park is the main distillery on the northern Scottish Island but Scapa is known for its rich, fruity, and coastal qualities. The distillery overlooks the Scapa Bay and Flow which eventually leads out to the North Sea.
