‘The world’s greatest all-rounder’ – Michael Jackson

Founded in 1824 in the heart of Speyside, The Macallan was one of the first distilleries to be legally licensed and since then continues to be one of the most important distilleries in Scotland. Since then, it has built a reputation for creating one of the world’s finest single-malt whiskies, the luxury spirits brand, which is notably sought-after by collectors and continues to achieve impressive prices at auction.

The Macallan’s oak maturation casks are a foundation for the distinguished quality, natural colours and distinctive flavours of The Macallan.

‘It is the interaction of the precious spirit with the rare and expensive sherry casks for just the right amount of time that gives the most perfect whisky’ – Ken Grier, Brand Director of The Macallan.
