Caol Ila has been built in 1846 by Hector Henderson, who also owned the old plant Camlachie in Glasgow. This is a fairly isolated location was chosen not accidentally Henderson - The nearby Loch Nam Bam, known for its clear water. In 1926 Caol Ila became the property of DCL.

Brand "Connoisseur's Choice" is well known among connoisseurs of whiskey. Under this brand are produced single malt whiskey, which are produced by little-known distilleries, facing the threat of closure and disappearance. From 1980 to 1995, in Scotland was closed 29 distilleries, some of which are entirely ceased to exist, and some indefinitely suspended its work. The reasons for closing are different, but it would be a pity to lose all whiskey produced at these distilleries. Each of these hard liquor has its own unique properties that could never be obtained with production at any other distillery. It is for this reason, Gordon and McPhail for many years bought up in bulk malt from little-known distilleries, thus saving them from closing. All made of whiskey and thus began to be produced under the brand name "Connoisseur's Choice".
