The Macallan Six Pillars
- The Spiritual Home
Easter Elchies house proudly watches over the distillery in Speyside, Scotland. Built in 1700, this Jacobean Manor house is the Macallan’s spiritual home.
- Curiously Small Stills
The Macallan’s curiously small and uniquely shaped copper stills help concentrate the flavour of the ‘New Make’ spirit.
- The Finest Cut
The Macallan takes one of the finest new make spirit ‘cuts’ of any distillery in Scotland – typically a mere 16%
- Exceptional Oak Casks
The Macallan Double Cask is exclusively matured in sherry seasoned oak casks from America and Europe. These casks are filled with aged sherries in SPain and left to season before receiving new make spirit.
- Natural Colour
The interaction of spirit and wood alone delivers the variety of rich and natural colours that distinguish the Macallan range.
- Peerless Spirit
The Macallan is celebrated far and wide by experts and discerning drinkers as the world’s most precious whisky.
