All about making whisky
Located in the heart of Speyside, Tamdhu was founded in 1897 by a consortium bringing together William Grant and various other blenders for the production of a whisky destined for use in blends. Now the property of the Scottish group Edrington, its malt is still found at the heart of renowned blends such as Famous Grouse. Highly exclusive, it does offer a classic bottling of its single malt, aged in bourbon casks and with no age statement. The independent bottlings released by Signatory Vintage and Gordon & MacPhail are predominately matured in sherry casks, which reveal the strong personality and potential of this little known 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.
Located in the heart of Speyside, Gordon & MacPhail have excellent business relations with the region’s main distilleries. Each one has a specific label, originally associated with a semi-official release. Another label enables specialists such as La Maison du Whisky to bottle single casks in accordance with their specifications. Called simply Gordon & MacPhail Reserve, this range has now introduced a different colour label for each production region.
