A rare rum blend made in Panama, Ron Abuelo Centuria is aged in Jack Daniel’s whiskey barrels in the solera method. Some of the rums are as old as 30 years, and the flavour is astonishingly rich and punchy.
Containing some of the first whisky distilled at Benromach when it reopened in 1998, this bottling celebrates the 20th anniversary of the distillery’s rebirth under Gordon & MacPhail ownership. Lightly peated and aged in a combination of bourbon and sherry casks, this combines notes of fruit cake, vanilla and gentle smoke.
Red Door Gin delivers signature notes of juniper and a defining citrus note of bitter orange, with aromatic sea buckthorn, floral pearls of heather and chocolatey rowanberries. Handmade in a copper pot still, affectionately named, ‘Peggy’, the vapour-infused distilling method steams the neutral base spirit through eight botanicals and is then bottled at 45% ABV.

Rough Rider Bull Moose Three Barrel Rye Whisky spends a bit of time maturing in three different specially selected casks that impart distinctive character along the way. The journey begins in New American Oak casks where the Rye Whisky takes shape with its resolute spicy sweet cinnamon flavors. When the time is right, the Rye Whisky is moved to casks that had just held Straight Bourbon, where the flavors of the Rye and Bourbon get to know each other better.
When the Rye is done mingling with the Bourbon flavors, it is then moved to its final cask which had just held Pine Barrens Single Malt Whisky. This unique Three Barrel aging method provides Rough Rider Rye with a crisp fruity sweetness on the nose, followed by spice, caramel, vanilla and blackberry on the palate, lauded by a royal symphony of long, warm rye-ness, with a toasty, velvety finish.
The Gordon & MacPhail Discovery range examines the core flavours at the heart of Scotch single malt whisky, and this is the headline of the Smoky side of things. A 13-year-old Caol Ila from the island of Islay, this is as typical a dram as you can get from the island, packed with sweet fruit and dark peat smoke.
We’d long been working on a blend of single malts that combines seemingly dissonant flavour profiles, but together creates something compelling. We landed on a recipe that elicited a surprising range of reactions and descriptions, each person taking away something different from the whisky.
Rather than try to settle on whose perceptions were ‘right’ or ‘wrong’, we were inspired by the phenomenological school of thought to consider how different people experience the same phenomenon.
A bonfire-like smokiness on the nose with a peatiness that is by turns tarry and medicinal with hints of autumn leaves. A powerful smokiness and peatiness follow, accented by hints of ripe cherries, plums and spice.
A mainstay of kitchen gardens across Scotland and intensely flavoured, rhubarb is the ideal ingredient for a sweet gin liqueur.
Freshly picked spring-crop rhubarb is spiked with Oriental ginger and infused with our classic Edinburgh Gin. The rhubarb and spice are left to steep for four weeks, allowing for the complex flavours to marry together.
Bottled at 20% ABV, the sweetly-spiced notes of our Rhubarb & Ginger Liqueur make the perfect addition to a classic Bramble. This aromatic gin liqueur is equally at home over ice, topped up with chilled Prosecco, or mixed with ginger ale, garnished with fresh ginger and a lime twist.
A 25-year-old, ultra-premium rum, elegant, with a dark amber color. It has an aroma that integrates vanilla, wood and dark cocoa notes, which mingle smoothly on the palate with fruity, nutty and caramel notes. There is also a pleasant and long-lasting touch of sweetness. Named “2017 Best Rum of the Year” by the International Rum Conference in Madrid.
