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.
In 2018, Macallan released the first in their Concept series; a limited annual release celebrating bold visionaries who dare to think beyond traditional boundaries. This series joins the Rare Cask and Quest collections as a travel retail exclusive.
Number 1 is inspired by surrealist art - with the label depicting the Macallan Six Pillars in the style of surrealism - which is apparently echoed through the innovation of their slightly different maturation process in the production of this release.
