Mackillop's Choice, was an independent whisky bottler established in 1996 by Angus Dundee Distillers, deriving its name from their head of whisky curation, Lorne Mackillop, heir to the chief of the Mackillop Clan. Historically linked to the tragic aftermath of the Battle of Culloden in 1745, the Mackillop Clan's survival inspired the brand. Lorne Mackillop, a Master of Wine, meticulously selected casks bottled in the Mackillop's Choice range. Rejecting 80% of encountered casks, Lorne's commitment to quality shined through in Mackillop's Choice, reflecting his personal taste for Speyside and aged Islay whiskies.
