With a planned opening in 2022, Gordon & MacPhail has announced the name of its distillery in Speyside: The Cairn.
Announced in May 2018, work on the distillery began in July this year at the Cairngorms National Park, in a location overlooking the Cairngorms mountain range, hence the name.
In the words of Ian Chapman, Brand Director of the distillery: “We put the consumer at the centre when creating the brand, and also when thinking about the design of the distillery itself. We wanted to make sure it was clearly Scottish but easy to pronounce and write. This is a detail that will be very important for our international markets where English is not the primary language.”
This is the second distillery of the well-known bottler, which will join Benromach.
