Ten Whisky Merchants

December 21, 2018

Gordon & MacPhail established in 1895 has grown to become a diverse and dynamic company with a number of different business interests.  Today they are a multi-faceted international business: retailer, specialist UK wholesaler, international trade partner, single malt maturation experts, and distiller, owning Benromach Distillery in Forres.


The Family owned business offers a wide range of different career opportunities and ways to improve and progress through different training provided by the company.  Gordon & MacPhail recently recruited Fraser Robson as a Whisky Ambassador.  Fraser is responsible for conducting whisky tastings with customers, selecting the right products to sell i


n the whisky room, communicating with customers about new and limited Gordon & Macphail bottlings and also looks after the shop’s social media channels.  He said,


“I love whisky so the ability to work with it every day is great.  Gordon & MacPhail is a company I have admired for since I discovered whisky and I’ve always wanted to work for them. I joined G&M at a really exciting time in a year that saw the company launch their brand new portfolio of premium single malts.”


In the retail shop in Elgin High Street the Company’s spiritual home from where it all began, there are 24 team members who work on the shop floor who are temporary to seasonal.  Some of their main duties are to sell groceries to customers, handle cash and payments, receive deliveries, manage stock and speak to customers.  A member of staff said,


“Working here is great as it’s like a second family!  I enjoy giving the customers a 5-star customer service.  I just love it!”


Another job within the retail shop is a Deli Supervisor. Their main duties consist of: Communicating with suppliers on the latest and best produce available from Scotland and beyond, stock management, making sure all team members are complying with health and safety regulations and making sure the deli counter is always immaculately presented.  Nina Caird was employed for the role a few months ago, she said,


“I love meeting different people in my job while having interaction with everyone.  Working at the Deli is great as I enjoy showcasing all the high-quality products available.”
