The 'Generations' range by Gordon & MacPhail, showcases true liquid history with some of the longest-matured Scotch whisky ever bottled.

This Mortlach was the very first release in the range. In 2008, only 54 decanters of this exquisite liquid were drawn from a single Sherry cask that was filled in 1938, just a year before the Second World War.
