- The brand
The brandComme son nom l’indique, la distillerie Speyburn est implantée dans la région du Speyside, non loin de Rothes en plein milieu d’une forêt. Dessiné par Charles Doig, célèbre architecte de distilleries, le bâtiment d’origine a ouvert ses portes en 1897. Installée sur l’emplacement d’un affluent de la rivière Spey : Le ruisseau Granty Burn, elle bénéfice d’un environnement particulier et d’une eau extrêmement pure, lui permettant de produire un single malt parmi les plus représentatifs du style de la région Speyside : Un Single Malt élégant, rond et fruité.
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.
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%.
