Gordon & MacPhail reveals £100k whisky collection

Independent bottler Gordon & MacPhail has created a one-off Scotch whisky collection priced at £100,000 (US$134,000).

The set comprises 17 200ml bottles from Gordon & MacPhail’s Private Collection. Each whisky was curated by Stephen Rankin, director of prestige. The whiskies are housed in a bespoke Scottish oak cabinet, hand-crafted by family-owned Method Studio. The Private Collection Showcase is on display in Elgin, Scotland, in the shop where Gordon & MacPhail was established in 1895. Rankin said: “The cabinet is unlike anything we have done before and is a chance to own a piece of Scotland’s whisky history. "It’s a labour of love, from the meticulous process of our whisky experts pairing the spirit with the cask to the precision and talent of the cabinet makers, each built up over decades of experience. “The result is a celebration of the patience and dedication that comes with true craftsmanship.” The full collection of whiskies available within the showcase are:
