Scapa 1993 Exclusive Gordon & Macphail

The Scapa distillery


The Scapa distillery is located in the north of Scotland, in fact, it is the second most northern distillery in Scotland, just a few kilometers from Highland Park. The company is located in the bay of Scapa, a historic place for the United Kingdom Navy, as it was a key point during the First and Second World War for Allied ships.


Scapa was born in 1885 at the hands of Macfarlane & Townsend, during the 50s the company changed ownership in favor of Hiram Walker & Sons Ltd (part of Pernord Ricard), period in which he received a wash and some distillery modules were rebuilt.


From 1994 to 2004 the distillery suffered several periods of inactivity until in 2004 it finally closed its doors. During this period the most common and commercially available version was Scapa 12 Years, a whiskey that stood out from the rest of the Islands for its contrast between its heather and honey notes and the salt notes.


In November 2004 the distillery restored the production of whiskey, due to periods of inactivity, introducing 14 years Scapa, a different whiskey but maintaining the character of the distillery.


Again in November but this time in 2009, the distillery decides to relaunch its whiskey, with two years of aging in American barrels of ex-bourbon of first extra use, this time as a 16 year old. At the end of 2015 this expression of Scapa was finalized and replaced by other versions of the distillery.


The Scapa distillery is known among Islands whiskeys for its powerful body, notes of heather and honey combined with salt notes and its low level of peat. This softness and difference in smoky and peaty notes is due to the distillery using water flowing over peat, but to take it to the distillery, they use a series of ducts to avoid excessive water contact with the peat. The malt does not dry with peat, therefore the only ones from peat come from the waters that are taken to the facilities.

Gordon and MacPhail


Gordon & MacPhail is an independent bottler and scotch whiskey distillery located in the city of Elgin, northwest Scotland. Founded in 1895 founded by James Gordon and John Alexander MacPhail, it is a family business owned by the Urquhart family. Gordon & MacPhail has been bottling single malts for over 122 years and bottling more than 350 expressions from 70 different distilleries.


In 1993 the Urquhart family succeeded in fulfilling a dream that had persecuted different generations of the family, owning a distillery. In that year Gordon & MacPhail bought the distillery located in Forres, Benromach. Thanks to the great experience of the family, the distillery was re-equipped, restored and opened in 1998.


Gordon & MacPhail has different lines that stand out for different aspects;


Connoisseurs Choice: In 1960 G&M launched a line of whiskeys under the name Connoisseurs Choice, presented a series of single malts that were not available in the market, mainly because the distilleries did not bottle as single Malts your whiskeys. Today, Connoisseurs Choice, retains the initial spirit, presenting single malts difficult to access.


Distillery Label: In association with each distillery they are bottled and labeled "officially" under the authorization of the distillery. Today, this relationship of trust allows Gordon & MacPhail to bottle at different ages, volume of alcohol and vintages with the distinctive distillery label.


Private Collection: Selection of whiskeys personally chosen by the directors of G&M for its exclusivity and long aging.


Speymalt: Gordon & MacPhail bottles whiskeys of different ages, volume of alcohol and vintages of one of the most famous distilleries in the world, Macallan.


The MacPhail's Collection: Small and exclusive range of bottling of the best whiskeys of; Bunnahabhain, Glen Scotia, Glenglassaugh, Glenrothes, Glenturret, Highland Park and Tamdhu.
