The company Gordon & MacPhail, producing high-quality whiskey since 1895, is the oldest and most respected in Scotland. From the very first days of its existence, the company bought alcohol from the best of Scottish producers, and then kept them in barrels until such time as the whiskey did not reach the best flavor characteristics. To date collection of whiskeys, Gordon and McPhail is considered one of the largest in the world and the oldest whiskey in the collection are more than 50 years.
In the 60s of the last century, George Urquhart, father of the present owner of Gordon and McPhail realized the need to create a unique collection of alcohol distilleries, which at that time threatened bankruptcy and extinction. Just so was born the light collection «Connoisseurs Choice», which means "Select a connoisseur," which reflects the styles of more than 40 distilleries in Scotland. To create it developed a general concept of packaging design, but most importantly, the best were selected seasoned alcohols, which will satisfy the most discerning connoisseurs of single malt whiskey. One of them is the graceful Allt-A-Bein 14 years of aging.
Title whiskey Allt-A-Bhainne has Gaelic roots and means "source of milk." Whiskey is created from high quality distillates, which Gordon and McPhail purchase on the same plant Speyside, which was built in 1975. The main purpose of Allt-A-Bein was to ensure uninterrupted supply of single malt whiskey for blends Chivas Regal, but later, due to the increasing demand for the products of the plant was established and independent whiskey, which has taken its rightful place among the aged whiskey, other than sweet fruit and spicy taste and aroma.
