The Producer

Macphails Vatted Malts

Macphails Vatted Malts

MacPhail’s whiskies are produced under the wing of whisky giant Gordon and MacPhail. These single malts are taken from an undisclosed distillery and packaged and marketed under the name of ‘MacPhail’s,’ having been stored in Gordon and MacPhail’s own casks.

The company has been in existence since 1895, and now independently bottles a wide range of whiskies from various distilleries, including both single malts and blended whiskies.

The Region

Blended Malts

Blended Malts

Blended Malt Scotch Whisky (previously known as Vatted Malt or Pure Malt) is a blend of different single malt whiskies from several distilleries. The malts would have been skilfully selected to create an whisky of unique and idiosyncratic character. The vatting process (re-casking into a single container) allows the flavours of the individual malts to integrate (to "marry" together).

However, unlike the whiskies simply labelled as "Blends/Blended", vatted malts do not contain any grain whisky

One of the most renowned ambassadors of the vatted malts category has been Johnnie Walker Green Label. Other examples include Poit Dhubh,  Eleuthera by Compass Box (vatted from Caol Ila and Clynelish), Macphails and Berry Bros. & Rudd's pride, Blue Hanger
