Lot number: 096-02721
Winning bid: £32,000
Founded in 1895, Gordon & MacPhail has been bottling single malt whiskies for 120 years and by the 1950s it 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 - a Mortlach 1939 75 Year Old - as well as being a distiller itself after buying Benromach in 1993. They bottle whisky across several ranges including Connoisseurs Choice, the Private Collection, and their most exclusive, Generations.
On 14th January 1943, John Urquhart oversaw the filling of a specially selected first fill Sherry Hogshead with new-make Glenlivet spirit and left it to mature until 1967 when his son moved it to warehouses in Elgin. Now the fourth generation bottled Cask 121 into into forty-two decanters.
This is an extremely rare 1943 single malt and presented in a very special display case with a unique backstory.
