Glenburgie 10 years (G&M)

Glenburgie 10 yearsSet close to the A96, near the village of Alves, lies Glenburgie Distillery which looks over the Moray Firth. The distillery was originally called Kilnflat, although in 1878 after a period of disuse, it was renamed Glenburgie. Nearby is Burgie Castle, which dates back to the 16th century. For a short while Glenburgie also produced another single malt, Glencraig. This was produced using Lomond stills and is available in our Rare Old range.

Gordon & MacPhail (G&M). Distillery Labels

Established in 1895 the family owned firm of Gordon & MacPhail is custodian to some of the world’s finest and rarest Single Malt Scotch Whiskies.
