For 125 years, Gordon & Macphail has been driven by a simple mission: to create single malt scotch whisky of exceptional quality.
Glen Grant 1953 Mr George Legacy G&M
‘Mr George’, as he was fondly known by those who knew him best, was Mr George Urquhart, second generation of the family that owns Gordon & MacPhail.
A true pioneer, Mr George was instrumental to the success of Scotch whisky, particularly single malts.
Mr George travelled widely, keen to showcase single malts from distilleries all over Scotland, matured in his own casks. This exceptional whisky is a fitting tribute to his pioneering spirit.
