- The brand
The North British grain distillery was founded in 1885 by three important names in the world of blended scotch at the time: Andrew Usher, William Sanderson and John M Crabbie. The aim was to join forces in order to compete against DCL, a structure created in 1877 that brought together a huge number of distilleries, whose production it controlled. The mission for North British was to supply all of the grain whisky required for the growth of various blends, such as Usher’s Whisky and Vat 69. The distillery remained independent until 1993 when it joined the Diageo group.
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.
Selected by the directors of Gordon & MacPhail, the whiskies that make up the Private Collection all present exceptional quality and character. These rare, vintage single malts are usually from the top distilleries (Caol Ila, Glenlivet, Longmorn etc.), and are presented in very limited, sometimes totally unique bottlings. “Decades” is also part of the Private Collection range; this consists of six bottlings of Glenlivet, one per decade from the 1940s to the 1990s.
