Single Malt Scotch Whisky and Polio?

What’s the story here? Elgin Rotary has teamed up with family owned and managed firm, Gordon & MacPhail, to bottle, distribute and sell a unique single malt whisky – The Fellowship Malt.  ‘Fellowship’ is a 10 year old Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky with a difference!  Supporting Rotary’s charity, Rotary Foundation, the proceeds of each bottle sold will buy 10 inoculations against polio.  In the 18 months to 31 December 2010, over £ 6,500 has been generated from the sale of The Fellowship Malt: this is equivalent to 10,000 inoculations which helps support the international efforts to eradicate polio worldwide.

Why polio?  In 1985, the Rotary movement worldwide committed to the eradication of polio in all countries. This has almost been achieved but there remain four countries where new cases have been identified. The revised target is to complete the task in those areas over the next two years.

Since the founding of the business with the opening of their retail shop in Elgin in 1895, Gordon & MacPhail has grown into one of Scotland’s leading independent whisky specialists, through bottling, exporting and distilling – owning Benromach Distillery in Forres.  The company is also one of the UK’s top independent whisky, wine and spirits wholesalers. David Urquhart, Joint Managing Director, added  “We were delighted to be approached to work with Elgin Rotary on the Fellowship single malt and are pleased that the first period of trading has seen such a valuable contribution worldwide.  Here’s to the continued success of Fellowship.”

The Fellowship Malt can be purchased through the website or from Gordon & MacPhail retail shop at 58-60 South Street , Elgin .  Online orders for multiples of 6 bottles are delivered free of charge within the mainland of the UK .
