Founded in 1895 Gordon & MacPhail have been bottling single malt whiskies for 120 years and by the 1950's they held the largest range of bottled malt whiskies in the world. This family run business has bottled the oldest single malt whisky in the world as well as being distillers themselves after buying Benromach in 1993.

Linkwood is a part of Diageo's portfolio of distilleries, having been in the possession of Scottish Malt Distillers / Distillers Company Ltd since the 1930s. Shortly after the DCL takeover in 1936, the distillery was run by a superstitious Gael called Roderick Mackenzie, who famously refused to remove even the cobwebs in the stillhouse in case it affected the quality of the spirit.

Age: 44 years old
