Whisky creator Gordon & MacPhail has unveiled a one-off collector’s item and arguably the ultimate Christmas present for the luxury whisky enthusiast. Presented in a bespoke Scottish oak cabinet, the one of a kind set includes seventeen 20cl bottles from Gordon & MacPhail’s Private Collection, each curated by Stephen Rankin, Director of Prestige.
Opening the cabinet reveals each single malt in the collection, recessed into a solid oak block crafted from one of the original whisky casks that cradled the spirit. The cabinet itself is lined in soft oatmeal leather from Andrew Muirhead & Son in Dalmarnock and the hand-crafted cabinet has been designed and created by family-owned Method Studio, makers of exquisite, bespoke furniture.
The label on each bottle has been designed to replicate those found on whiskies in the company’s inner sanctum, the sample room, used by Gordon & MacPhail to hone its unique experience of combining oak, spirit and time to create single malts found nowhere else. All hand-signed by Stephen, the labels regale several single malts from ‘lost’ distilleries, including St Magdalene in Linlithgow, Dallas Dhu and Caperdonich in Speyside and Glen Albyn from the Highlands.
Many of the whiskies within the cabinet are among the rarest ever released by Gordon & MacPhail as well as some sold out whisky that will never be available to purchase again.
This is a limited edition collection and there is only one available to buy. You can see the case at the spiritual home of Gordon & MacPhail in Elgin and purchase it directly through their website priced at £100k.
