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.
Released at the tail end of 2017, this 15 Year Old Gran Reserva has been created predominantly using 1st Fill European oak sherry casks. Such was the anticipated demand for this expression, that Macallan decided the fairest way to allocate the limited supply was using a ballot system. If you weren't one of the lucky ones that won the chance to buy one, we've got your second chance right here.
