The distillery is located north of Port Askaig on the isle Islay directly at the kyle of Islay. From the distillery you have a wonderful view of the isle Jura. It was built in 1846 and since 1974 it has a completely new stillhouse with six stills. It is owned by Diageo and can be mentioned as a good example for a ‘working house’ that mainly produces for blends for Johnnie Walker.

Once a small delicatessen, Gordon & MacPhail is now one of the international experts in the maturation of special Scotch whiskies. Family-owned for four generations, the company has combined its own casks with distillates from over 100 Scottish distilleries. In more than 125 years, the independent bottler has earned a privilege or two – such as being allowed to use the retro labels of some of Scotland’s most popular distilleries for their bottlings.
Launched in 1968 by whisky visionary George Urquhart, it now comprises more than 2,000 bottlings. As of now, this includes the Caol Ila 2009/2022 with Wood Finish in the Sassicaia Cask. The Tuscan red wine from the Tenuta San Guido vineyard is one of Italy’s best wines and complements the island whisky with figs, berries and cinnamon.
