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 round the world.

It's difficult to overstate just how rare this bottle of Macallan is. Drawn from a single Sherry cask, it was bottled by R.W Duthie & Co of Aberdeen (the owners of Cadenhead's prior to J&A Mitchell) before being imported to Italy by Silvio Samaroli for Osteria Apostoli of Milan. This is the holy grail of independently bottled Macallans.
