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. 其他珍稀的佳釀還包括高登麥克菲爾酒廠世代系列(Generations)中最陳年的格蘭利威70年珍釀,該支單一麥芽威士忌於1940年2月3日在John Urquhart(現今高登麥克菲爾酒廠擁有者的祖父及曾祖父)指導下蒸餾,然後注進雪莉桶,置放於格蘭利威釀酒廠六號酒倉,讓它醞釀七十年之久,直至2010年才裝瓶。

  • Made at the height of the Battle of Britain, The Glenlivet 1940 opens a door into a different time, another country. To smell and taste this exquisite whisky is to experience the past in a unique way – layer upon layer of flavour, profound and evocative. Its companions from the succeeding five decades provide an unrepeatable opportunity to explore subtle differences in the flavour of this Prince of Whiskies over half a century – as well as being a Blue Chip investment.
