Murray McDavid Independent Bottler

Highland Park Gold Mission Series Scotch WhiskyMark Reynier, Simon Coughlin and Gordon Wright founded Murray McDavid in 1996.

The company is named after Mark Reynier's grand parents, Harriet Murray and Jock McDavid, Unlike other Independent bottlers, Murray McDavid hasn't a blenders tradition to follow, bottling only single malts instead of blends.

With Mark Reynier, third generation wine merchant, Murray McDavid has taken several aspects from the wine industry in the preparation of their bottlings, for example always tasting each individual cask, then creating a collection of several casks from the same distillation to create consistency and maximise complexity.

Some of these whiskies are selected for further refinement with a period of Additional Cask Evolution (ACE'd) on Islay in European Oak wine casks such as Chateau Lafite, Chateau Margaux, Chateau d'Yquem,

All bottlings are with Islay Spring water, bottled at the Bruichladdich distillery.  they never add any colouring, nor do they chill filter

The range is intentionally small, less than 10 bottlings at a time, selected from distilleries which produce great whiskies, rather than simply distilleries having a well known name. 


Murray McDavid Macallan scotch Whisky The "Mission Gold" Range is a collection of some of the oldest and rarer casks in Murray McDavid cellars , chosen for their out standing quality and uniqueness.
