The History Of Murray McDavid

Murry McDavid is an independent Scotch whisky bottler specialising in blended malts, single grains and single malts. Its home is the Coleburn Distillery, located deep within the prestigious Speyside region. The bottler was founded by Gordon Wright, Simon Coughlin and Mark Reynier in 1996. Wright had previously worked as the director for Springbank Distillery.

The Coleburn distillery practices the fine art of maturation by using high-quality oak casks to age their whisky. They bottle a wide range of interesting and exciting whisky, known as Crafted Blend, The Vatting, Select Grain, Mystery Malt, Benchmark and Mission Gold. Part of the charm of their bottled offerings is that they represent different Scottish regions showcasing drams that are full of character and unique from one another.

As well as being an independent bottler, the company also celebrates everything that’s great about Scotch with whisky lovers and their friends hosting special gatherings and tastings in some of the most beautiful locations in and around the UK, as well as overseas. In addition, they play host to special whisky trips and tastings on their very own 60ft authentic wooden boat, the Murray McDavid that resides in Glasgow city centre on the River Clyde.

In 2000, Murray McDavid purchased the Bruichladdich distillery that was dormant at the time and brought it back into whisky production. Furthermore, in 2012 Remy Cointreau UK Ltd bought both Murray McDavid and Bruichladdich Distillery Company Limited, who subsequently sold it to Aceo Limited in 2013. Director of Aceo, Edward Odim, expressed that they planned to continue the Murray McDavid legacy and stay true to the principles of bottling meticulously selected single malts, without adding colours or chill-filtering.

In continuation of their quest to support Scotland’s beloved drink, they also share a long-standing partnership with the Speyside Festival.

What To Look For

Sell Murray McDavid whisky online

McDavid bottles are traditional tall style bottles with a gold cork stopper. Earlier bottles have a small white label with the logo in gold writing above and are presented in a wooden box. Later editions (1980 onwards) have a larger label and are presented in either an orange box, a green metallic or a gold metal tin with a label and the logo embossed into the casing.

A 36-year-old bottle of 1969 Macallan Murray McDavid recently sold for £1,550.

The Six Factors That Affect The Price Of Murray McDavid Whisky

There are six factors that will affect the price of your bottle of Murray McDavid. These are the age of the whisky, the bottling date, the vintage, whether it is a single cask edition, the level of the whisky and the condition of the label and box.

Murray McDavid whisky value

Age of Whisky

This refers to the number of years the whisky has spent maturing in the cask, not how long it has been in the bottle. The age is indicated on the label and can vary from 5 to over 30 years old.

Macallan Whisky Worth

Bottling Date

This relates to when the whisky was bottled. As bottles from a specific year are consumed, the remaining bottles become rarer, so a ‘standard’ malt released in the 1980’s can become sought after.

Distillation Year

The distillation year refers to the specific year in which the whisky was distilled (made).  It is one of the most important factors that can impact the price of your bottle of Murray McDavid.

Label & Packaging

The label on a bottle of Murray McDavid is very important and if it is damaged in any way then this will have a negative impact on the value. A bottle without its original box could be worth up to 30% less.

Murray McDavid whisky value

Level

The level of the whisky has a large impact on the value. It should be into the neck (the narrow part). As alcohol is more volatile than water it is the alcohol that will evaporate first, which damages the flavour.

Single Cask Bottlings

Single cask bottlings are generally more sought after, as by default they are unique. Look out for numbers on your bottle like XXX/250, which would indicate a single cask edition.

Mark Littler LTD 5 star Google reviews

“I found Mark’s details online after looking to sell a collectable bottle of whisky. I was going to use a well know auction site but Mark secured an offer higher than the highest estimation from any auction house, within days, even after the 10% commission was deducted. Communication was perfect; punctual, to the point and polite. Collection and delivery were taken care of by Mark and instruction was clear and easy to follow. Payment was received to my bank within days of posting the bottle. I can’t recommend Mark enough; he runs a tight ship gets top end offers from his clients and delivers quickly.”

Rod Fountain, via Google

“Mark has been very helpful in helping me sell a bottle of whisky which was given to my father many years ago. He was very professional and was always quick to reply to my questions. Not knowing anything about whisky, Mark was there to offer some good advice and I believe he is very knowledgeable about his work. The sale was done very [quickly], and the money was in my bank account the next day. I would highly recommend his services.”
