Murray McDavid is a bottler of Scotch whisky, offering a range from vintage single malts and grains to blended malts.


Murray McDavid was established in 1996 by Mark Reynier, Simon Coughlin, and Gordon Wright (who had previously been a director at Springbank Distillery). On 19 December 2000 Murray McDavid purchased the then-dormant Bruichladdich distillery and returned it to production. On 23 July 2012 it was announced that Rémy Cointreau UK Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Rémy Cointreau Group had acquired Bruichladdich Distillery Company Limited with Murray McDavid as part of the acquisition.[1] On 8 May 2013 it was announced that Murray McDavid had been sold to UK based Scotch whisky suppliers Aceo Limited,[2] with director of Aceo Ltd, Edward Odim, saying "Our intention is to continue the legacy of Murray McDavid by staying true to its founders' vision and principles such as bottling carefully selected single malts without chill-filtering or adding colour and continuing and developing the tradition of Ace-ing[clarification needed] casks".
