The latest offering in the family-owned Scotch whisky firm’s luxury Generations range, Mortlach 75 Years Old (44.4% ABV) is a premium single malt with notes of dried apricots and pomegranate, followed by hints of spice and creamy vanilla. With a smooth and lingering smoky finish, which remains long after the dram has been savoured, it is a truly unforgettable whisky.

Generations Mortlach 75 Years Old by Gordon & MacPhail is presented in an iconic teardrop-shaped decanter which has been skilfully handcrafted to display 75 multi-level ‘cuts’, each cut representing a year of the whisky’s maturation. The decanter sits on a white presentation plinth with two specially designed crystal glasses and is packaged in a luxury Aniline leather travel bag.

The special edition whisky is also accompanied by a specially commissioned book, Seven Nights with Mortlach, penned by acclaimed whisky writer Charles Maclean and international bestselling author Alexander McCall Smith.
