At Gordon & MacPhail, they believe that the wood really makes the whisky. And they are right.
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 hve 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.

Pinkster, agreeably British Gin. A refreshing 38 % pinky up gin, that deserves your attention and to never let go. I was curious for a while, but it finally happened. It took some time, but it did.
My pink went straight up in the air and I had a chance to nose and to taste this beautiful looking bottle of pink gin. Pinkster is a characteristic, small batch premium gin and characteristic it is for sure, no doubt.
When you visit the website, you will find a short story how this all started. It made me laugh though.

Balblair, vintages timed to perfection. This is a quote that can be found on their website, not to miss and I couldn’t agree more. They make perfection and the good news is, there is perfection to be found for everyone.

Everything is possible with the colorful Balblair whisky range.
