- Aultmore lies several miles north of the town of Keithon the eastern fringe of Speyside. The destillery was founded in the 1890's. The whisky is a component of the Dewars blend.
Gordon and MacPhail was founded in 1895, as a Family Grocers, Tea, Wine and Spirit Merchant. The founding fathers, James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail who's approach was to personally select their stocks for their quality. The company started buying up casks of single malt whisky from local distilleries. They were one of the first companies to specialise in single malt whiskies long before individual distilleries started to do so. The used to bottle unde licence from famous distilleirs such as Macallan, Glenlivet, Glen Greant, Linkwood and Mortlach. Eventually they stated to fill their own casks, mostly ex sherry casks and age them for much longer than was the norm.
In the mid 1960's, they released what would become an icon in the world of single malts, namely their Connoisseurs Choice range. These were a range of single malts from different distilleries ladled under Gordon & MacPhail's own Connoisseurs Choice label. These were focused at the Italian, French, American and Dutch markets and ignited the interest in single malt whisky which is still present in these countries today in single malt whiskies.
Gordon & Macphail became a limited company in the late 1970's but is still family owned and managed to this day. www.gordonandmacphail.com
