The brand

The brand

Built in 1962 by William Lawson Distillers Ltd (John Dewars & Sons), Macduff was one of only a small number of Scottish distilleries to be founded in the 1920’s. When it first began, all of its malt was used for William Lawson, a blend well-known to France in the 1980s. Later, a ten year old version of its single malt was released under the name Glen Deveron. Only a handful of independent bottlers, including Signatory Vintage and Gordon & MacPhail, offer vintage bottlings of this highly exclusive single malt.


This independent bottler is without a doubt one of the most highly acclaimed in Scotland. It stands out, not for its age (though it is the oldest independent bottler in Scotland), but for its complete mastery of cask ageing. Gordon & MacPhail is the only bottler to have its own casks - carefully chosen for the purpose - filled by the distilleries themselves, instead of simply buying the ones suggested to them by the latter. This allows it to determine, in advance and with great precision, exactly how many years a whisky will need to reach ideal maturation.

The line

Of all the existing specialist bottling ranges, Connoisseurs Choice is without doubt the oldest. The label underwent a few changes in the 1980s. Plainer and more restrained, it became two-toned with creams and browns. When segmentation by region of production region was adopted by the whisky industry in the early 1990s, the range changed its identity again. The label now shows a map of the region of Scotland where the malt comes from. To the delight of whisky enthusiasts, the range, which is always evolving, is now bottled at 43% and 46%.
