All about making whisky
A small independent bottlers, Murray McDavid is best known for its close links with the Bruichladdich distillery. Indeed, the distillery’s owner, Mark Reynier, is even one of its three founders. Like its master blender Jim McEwan, Murray McDavid is famous for its unique character and entirely original approach in the world of whisky. Because, even though its bottlings all have a minimum ABV of 46% and are un-chillfiltered, it favours a blend of various casks to single cask bottlings and has perfected the art of cask finishing.

Founded in 1996 by three epicureans, which included London wine merchants Mark Reynier and Simon Coughlin, the independent bottler Murray McDavid is named after Mark Reynier’s grandparents: Harriet Murray and Jock McDavid. They quickly gained a reputation for offering single malts that were not coloured or chill filtered. With this ‘Celtic Heartlands’ range, created in 2007, Murray McDavid offered a series consisting of five single casks of vintage-dated grain whisky from small distilleries: Dumbarton, Cameronbridge, Girvan, North British and Invergordon, the oldest of which dated from 1964 and the youngest from 1974.
