MacPhail’s Book of Kells 1950 33 Year Old

Macphail's Book of Kells 1950 33 year old for sale

This 'mystery' Macphails offering bottled by the iconic independent bottlers Gordon & Macphail is from an unknown distillery in the Scottish Highlands. What we do know is that it was distilled in 1950 and aged for 33 years before being bottled in the instantly recognisable Macphail’s Book of Kells series.

The Book of Kells is a 9th century illuminated manuscript containing four gospels, one of the illustrations has been adapted by Gordon and Macphail for use on the label in their 'Celtic Series' and the label shows two 'dram takers' intertwined in the classic Celtic medieval style seen in the Book of Kells.

This example does not come with a box.
