Mr George Legacy - Second Edition 1957 - 700ML
from Glen Grant Distillery
‘Mr George’, as he was fondly known by those who knew him best, was Mr George Urquhart, second generation of the family that owns Gordon & MacPhail.
Joining the business in 1933, Mr George began his career working alongside his father, John, who became sole owner of the company in 1915, after John Alexander MacPhail’s retirement and James Gordon’s passing.
Over the years, Mr George developed a deep understanding of Scotch whisky, especially the unique interaction that occurs over time between spirit and cask. He was instrumental to the success of Scotch whisky, championing single malt at a time when blends were the norm.
His philosophy and legacy live on today as Gordon & MacPhail continues to create a unique depth and breadth of rare single malt Scotch whiskies found nowhere else in the world.
