Murray McDavid are highly respected in the Scotch whisky industry, mainly for independently bottling whisky after selecting and ageing the spirit in high quality oak casks. Established in 1996 by Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Gordon Wright at the closed site of the Coleburn distillery in Speyside, Scotland. They are also known for the purchase of the closed Bruichladdich Distillery in 2000 and reopening this dormant distillery. They did such a good job of restoring production it was sold to Remy Cointreau in 2012 with a considerable profit.
This luscious whisky has matured in a 600-litre Sherry butt for 11 years before being filled into two freshly emptied Limousin oak casks, previously used to mature Pedro Ximénez Sherry. After 14 months, the enhanced spirit was reunited, having achieved a harmonious balance between rich oak and fine Scottish spirit. After being matured for no less than 12 years in high quality oak casks it was bottled at 50% ABV as part of the Murray McDavid Benchmark limited release series. Only 257 bottles were produced for worldwide distribution.
This Murray McDavid bottling has been bottled exclusively for Australia and hand picked by our team. A luscious whisky with sweet fresh aromas and a winter warming palate leading to a long delightful finish.

About The Distillery
GlenAllachie Distillery was built in Aberlour in 1967 and was a result of the United States led whisky boom around the world. Following two decades of operation the distillery was purchased by Invergordon Distillers, who then flipped the distillery over to Pernod Ricard after owning it for four years. During this time the distillery was mostly closed. In July 2017 Pernod Ricard was sold the distillery to The GlenAllachie Distillers Company which was owned and operated by former BenRiach Master Distiller Billy walker who has a very impressive resume in the whisky industry. It was then the distillery was given a capital ‘A’ in tradition that GlenDronach and BenRiach had been given a few years before. Bill Walker now has a distillery full of whisky with big fruity characteristics to play with and we are already seeing some spectacular bottlings emerging from the distillery. GlenAllachie’s new core range was released in June 2018 and it has been a hit so far amongst whisky connoisseurs.
