DEEP HISTORY OF THE MACALLAN WHISKEY
The Macallan was one of the first distillers in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then we have built a reputation as one of the world’s leading single malt whiskies. The creation of The Macallan draws on the vital contributing influences of Spain, North America, and Scotland – and of their respective natural raw materials, combined with traditional methods and craftsmanship.
The Macallan Estate is the Whisky Maker’s tribute to our heritage and home. It is an extremely special new single malt containing rare spirits from a proportion of the barley grown at Easter Elchies estate, which is distilled just once a year over the course of a single week. Created by Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess, The Macallan Estate is a celebration of the single malt’s peerless provenance and heritage.
The 485-acre Easter Elchies estate is set within the legendary Speyside region of Scotland, where The Macallan has been creating extraordinary single malts since 1824. Its carefully tended barley fields are located on the banks of the River Spey, overlooked by The Macallan’s new award-winning distillery. The Macallan Estate is presented in a striking gift pack featuring a hand-cut slate panel representative of the Scottish landscape of our home. Inside, aerial photography showcases the estate’s impressive barley fields on the banks of the beautiful River Spey.
The Macallan Estate delivers a subtle hint of citrus which balances the traditional sherried richness, resulting in a complex single malt with an extraordinarily long finish. Estate offers a unique opportunity to experience rare spirits made from our precious estate-grown barley and honors the birthplace of every bottle of The Macallan.
