About The Macallan
The Macallan whisky is one of the most sought after scotch having built a reputation for quality and prestige.

They say Macallan is the malt whisky by which all other single malts will be judged.

Produced in its Speyside distillery since 1824, using only the finest natural ingredients the Macallan is adored by Whisky Connoisseurs everywhere.

A key factor in the production of this outstanding whisky is the quality of the oak casks in which maturation takes place. These casks are the single greatest contributor to the brand’s outstanding quality, natural colours and distinctive aromas and flavours.

The Macallan spends more than any other distillery in sourcing, crafting, seasoning and caring for its casks. It uses Spanish sherry-seasoned oak casks which delivers flavours and aromas of chocolate, orange, dried fruits and spices, American sherry-seasoned oak casks which provide sweet citrus, spice, vanilla and oak flavours and aromas and, lastly, American bourbon-seasoned oak barrels to give flavours and aromas of sweet citrus, coconut and oak.

Of course words can provide a good idea of what one might expect but it is only when you taste The Macallan that you will experience the full realization of what we are talking about.
