The distillery was built in 1821 by Peter Brown, the factor of the Seafield Estates of Moray and Banffshire, and is named after Linkwood House, the family home. Brown's son, William, carried on the business and rebuilt the distillery in the 1870s. One of the managers in the 1930s believed that absolutely everything in the distillery played its part in making the whisky what it was and he commanded that nothing - not even a cobweb - be removed. Had he lived long enough, he would have been dismayed in 1962 when the internal layout was radically changed and again in 1971 when a second distilling unit with two pairs of stills was built alongside the original Linkwood single-pair set-up. L&S (Dec 2018)

*Case price: Mix any 12 bottles of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Deliciously full and robust whisky with notes dark toffee, vanilla spice and buttery oak. The long and wood-spiced finish is delightfully layered and complex. L&S

Gordon & MacPhail

James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail founded their grocery business in 1895 and the company shop is still there on South Street, Elgin as it has been for over 120 years. John Urquhart joined the business in 1915 and today his family still own and run the company. Outside of Elgin, of course, Gordon & Macphail is known as a whisky merchant, buying up young whiskies, ageing them and bottling them under the Gordon & Macpahil label. In 1998, they finally entered the distilling business proper with the purchase of the Benromach Distillery.
