Macallan Whisky

Macallan is now one of the most respected and coveted single malt whiskies in the entire world. It has been hailed as the 'Rolls Royce' of Scotch and has even been seen gracing the silver screen with James Bond. A lot of this is down to their intensive wood policy which sources some of the finest sherry casks used in Scotland today. The whiskies from Macallan are a rich, full and fruity delicacy.

The Macallan distillery was first founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid. It's believed that distilling was being carried out on site site long before this but Mr Reid was persuaded to register when the new licensing act came into effect. Originally it was known as Elchies distillery in reference to it's location in Easter Elchies. Since then the distillery has changed ownership several times but it is now operated by the Edrington Group.

 

A lot is said about the influence of Macallan's casks, and with good reason, but the spirit is quite unusual for the location as well. Macallan's small, almost dumpy stills and steep lyne arms create an oily, full spirit which isn't easily tamed. This is why the most lauded expressions of Macallan are often slightly older than other distilleries. Their attention to detail when it comes to their casks is also unparalleled and they have truly changed the game when it comes to sourcing and using wood.

 

In order to meet incredible worldwide demand for their whisky, Macallan opened a brand new £140m distillery in 2018. It is still located on Easter Elchies estate; merely 500m away from its predecessor. Here they hope will up production to 15 million litres a year making it Scotland's second largest distillery.
