A legend within the Scotch whisky community, Charles Gordon was fundamental in managing some of the earliest stock laid down for the House of Hazelwood and for laying down much of the stock that lies in cask today. The Charles Gordon Collection of rare and old Scotch whiskies represents some of the most remarkable stock held within the House of Hazelwood inventory, with every cask held for at least 50 years and with each bottle having a magnificent story to tell. For the first time, this great inventory of remarkable whiskies is being offered to those outside of the immediate family in small batches, hand-selected for release. 

These diverse and precious whiskies tell stories of remarkable places, lost ways of working, first casks, last casks and the ambitions and achievements of several lifetimes, none of which will be repeated again. The collection is held in warehouses across Scotland, each with their own unique environmental conditions that add their own nuance to the maturing stock.  

The Long Marriage is a unique and rare blended Scotch Whisky which was distilled in the mid-60s and blended three years later, only to lay undisturbed in a single refill sherry butt for over half a century. The rich and mature whisky has a majestic antique character with layers of complexity. Notes of candle wax, paraffin and Victorian stately homes create a wonderfully evocative oily nose that’s underpinned with a decadence only found in old grain whisky. The palate is vibrant, spicy and mouth-coating with cinnamon, star anise and cereal notes harmonising before a sweet to dry finish. Bottled at natural strength as a single cask release, this is one of the rarest whiskies held within the House of Hazelwood inventory. Packaged in a hand-engraved individually numbered decanter with a display box featuring gold leaf inlay, this is one of only 288 bottles so try it while you can.
