Located in the heart of Speyside, The Speyburn distillery is in the steep, wooded glen nearby by the Granty Burn stream. Benefiting from abundant pure water and the rich natural elements of this lush region of Scotland, this single malt has been aged for 15 years in American and Spanish oak barrels. bottled without chill filtration nor artificial colorant, this bottling shows a new face of the distillery bringing richness and complexity.
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.
