In the mid-1960s Gordon & MacPhail took the unprecedented step of launching a range of single malts
under the brand name ‘Connoisseurs Choice’. Until this time, many of the whiskies the range featured
would not have been available as single malt. Today, Connoisseurs Choice retains this exclusive nature
with a range of rare and sought after single malts from distilleries throughout Scotland.
