Gordon & MacPhail Generations Glenlivet 70 Years Old (Distilled 1940)
Bottled by Gordon & MacPhail, Elgin. On the 3rd of February 1940, to the instruction of John Urquhart (grandfather and great grandfather of the current owners of Gordon & MacPhail), a First Fill Sherry Butt was filled at Glenlivet Distillery and left to mature in warehouse number 6 at the distillery. On the 10th January 1980, the cask was moved to Gordon & MacPhail's own bonded warehouse in Elgin and in September 2010 the decision was taken to carefully empty cask number 339 and bottle this fine and rare single malt at cask strength 45.9%
Presented in a tear-shaped hand-blown crystal decanter with an elegant British Hallmarked silver stopper. The decanter nestles in a sterling silver base and is framed in a handmade box, crafted in Scotland using Scottish Elm. Only 100 70cl bottles will be released in 2011. Each crystal decanter is uniquely numbered. This is bottle 1 of 100.
