GORDON & MacPhail, the family-owned whisky firm, is making a difference in its community after raising thousands of pounds for a local charity.

The independent bottler and distiller, which is headquartered in Elgin, raised £5000 for Lossiemouth charity Outfit Moray, which provides outdoor learning opportunities for disadvantaged young people in the area.

The cash was raised by Gordon & MacPhail employees through a range of virtual events and activities, including virtual quizzes and a sponsored virtual walk from Elgin to Jerez.

“We are honoured to have supported Outfit Moray as our charity of the year,” said Jodie Clayton of Gordon & MacPhail.

“We’re delighted to have done our part to raise £5000 which will be used to help the charity offer its wide range of outdoor learning activities for young people in the area.

“This has been a year like no other, given the impact of COVID-19, but we were determined to continue to raise funds in these unusual circumstances. Colleagues at Gordon & MacPhail are committed to fundraising for a different charity annually and enjoy making a difference to local organisations and helping to support members of our community.”

Outfit Moray chief executive, Tony Brown, said contributions like the one from Gordon & MacPhail are “vital for our continued work”.
