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.
It was the year the Ford Consul was introduced, as well as The Archers. More importantly, the Stone of Scone, aka the Stone of Destiny, was found in Forfar, having been liberated from London (or so they thought!).
