Product Description

Gordon & MacPhail has unveiled, what it claims might be the world’s oldest ever bottled Single Malt Scotch, a 75-year-old Whisky from Mortlach.

On November 17, 1939, John Urquhart, the first generation of the family to be involved in Gordon & MacPhail, instructed the first-fill sherry cask to be filled with new-make spirit from Speyside’s Mortlach distillery.

Only 100 decanters, bottled at cask strength (44.4% abv), have been released. Twelve have been allocated to the UK.

Generations Mortlach 75 Years Old by Gordon & MacPhail is bottled in a teardrop-shaped Generations decanter. Each decanter is numbered and handcrafted with 75 ‘cuts’. Each cut represents a year of the whisky’s maturation. The decanter sits on a white presentation plinth and is accompanied with two specially designed crystal glasses.

The decanter is presented in a luxury Aniline leather travel bag and is accompanied by a specially commissioned book, ‘Seven Nights with Mortlach’. written by well known whisky writer, Charles Maclean and international author, Alexander McCall Smith who joined forces to tell tales of Scotland, whisky and the people behind this malt.  The book contains illustrations from up-and-coming Scottish artists.
