Brora 1982 Connoisseurs Choice b.1997

Brora 1982 Connoisseurs Choice Gordon & Macphail

This Brora was distilled in 1982 and bottled by Gordon & Macphail as part of their Connoisseurs Choice series. The Connoisseurs Choice Map label is instantly recognisable and one of G&M's most famous series of bottlings. This particular expression was distilled at Brora distillery in 1982 and bottled in 1997.

Whisky connoisseurs never thought they would see the day when Brora would reopen, yet Diageo announced way back in 2017 that the fabled distillery would reopen with a production aim of 800,000 litres per year. Brora began distilling again in 2021 and fans and collectors of vintage Brora bottles will be paying avid attention to the distillery’s new dealings. The knock on impacts to the secondary market are already being felt across the vintage collectable bottles of Brora.

Brora was founded in 1819, initially as Clynelish, its name was changed to Brora in 1969 after a new Clynelish distillery was opened. Brora only lasted an additional fourteen years under this name before it was closed as surplus to requirements in the early 80s. Since it closed Brora became a cult collectors malt, and the reopening has been met with much excitement in the drinking and collecting circles.

Gordon & Macphail are one of the oldest whisky bottlers to exist in the world. Bottling over 350 expressions from over 70 distilleries, as well as bottling whisky for numerous large distilleries in Scotland for decades. Bottling whisky for 115 years and now proud owners of the Benromach distillery since 1993. They did nearly purchase Strathisla Distillery from Seagram’s in the 1950’s, but Seagram’s wanted £71,000, whereas Gordon & Macpahil only offered £70,000. Imagine.
