Murray McDavid was established by London wine merchants Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Springbank Distillery’s Gordon Wright. They quickly gained a reputation for maturing whisky in interesting casks, especially in fine wine casks. In 2000, the Murray McDavid team set about reopening the closed Bruichladdich Distillery on Islay, engaging the services of Jim McEwan, an icon on Islay. In 2012, Remy Cointreau purchased Bruichladdich Distillery and Murray McDavid. Later, Murray McDavid was sold to its current owners. Today, the home of Murray McDavid is Coleburn Distillery in Speyside.
The name Half N Half comes from the Glasgow was of ordering a half pint of beer and a Scotch whisky while at the bar. This half n half is a blend of 50% single malt from Speyside distilleries and 50% Lowland single grain whisky. For its final year of maturation, it was finished in hogsheads previously used to mature a hoppy beer from the folks at MOOR Beer Co. in Bristol. Enjoy with your favorite beer or neat!
