Celebrating 50 years of Connoisseurs Choice
Celebrating 50 years of Connoisseurs Choice

Gordon & MacPhail are one of the best-known names in the world of independent bottling. Found in 1895, they are one of the oldest bottlers, with more than 100 years of selecting and bottling great whisky. Among those drams sits the Connoisseurs Choice range, a landmark in the whisky world, now 50 years old.

Launched in 1968, the Connoisseurs Choice series was one of the first ranges of whisky to focus entirely on single malt. Over the past five decades, the Connoisseurs Choice bottlings have been an opportunity for lesser known distilleries to take the spotlight and for whisky fans to see different sides of the names they already know and love.

In this tasting we will try whiskies from across the years, finding out what has made the series so successful.
