Miltonduff 10 Year Distillery Labels (Gordon & MacPhail)
Gordon & MacPhail Distillery Labels // Speyside, Scotland
The Speyside distillery, Miltonduff was established in 1824, shortly after the legalization of whisky production in Scotland. Prior to that, it was an illegal farm distillery known as Milton and owned by the Duff family. In the 1930s, Hiram Walker, who also owned George Ballantine & Son, acquired the distillery to secure a supply of whisky for its blends. Since 2005, the distillery has been owned by Pernod Ricard but its production is still a major component in Ballentine's blended whisky. This expression from independent bottler, Gordon & MacPhail, is a chill-filtered single malt that has aged in sherry casks for 10 years.
