Macallan 18 Year Old 1978 (Rothschild Import)
Lot number: 070-2100
Winning bid: £1,500
The Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. Now owned by the Edrington Group, The Macallan prides itself on its Six Pillars, which include its curiously small stills, very narrow 'cut' of new make spirit and exceptional cask management. It is the most sought after whisky for collectors, regularly setting records at auctions all around the world.
A fantastic classic Macallan from the good old days when it was only using sherry wood for the maturation. This exclusive cask use was one of the things that made The Macallan whisky one of the most popular whiskies in the world.
This bottle is a Rothschild import.
