- The brand
Located in the heart of the former capital of whisky, Glen Scotia is today just one of three distilleries in Campbeltown to hold a whisky production licence. This town, located in the south of the Kintyre peninsula, was the ancient scene of what could be called the “barley rush”, and in the 1880s was home to some 30 distilleries, including Glen Scotia, which was founded in 1832. At the end of the 20th century, Glen Scotia was mothballed on various occasions (from 1984 to 1989 and from 1994 to 2000), leaving it, likes its counterpart Springbank, with many shortfalls in its stocks. Mostly available as a 12 year old official bottling.
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.
A small, exclusive range of single malt bottlings, The MacPhail’s Collection includes whiskies from the Bunnahabhain, Glen Scotia, Glenglassaugh, Glenrothes, Glenglassaugh, Glenturret, Highland Park and Tamdhu distilleries. Whereas previously there were a lot of bottlings of very old whiskies, the range has now been completely renewed, with new labels, which show vintages or simple statements of age, and focus on younger single malts, such as Bunnahabhain 2004 or Highland Park aged 8 years
