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.

A new £140 million subterranean distillery and visitor centre on the Easter Elchies estate was opened to the public in the summer of 2018 and has since won several awards for its architectural quality; with its exciting features including glass walls of vintage whiskies, a circular pod of copper pot stills, and a Boutique reflecting those in Dubai and Heathrow airports.

Classic Cut:

Started in 2017, the Classic Cut is a series of annual releases which, according to the distillery, celebrates their ongoing commitment to seek out the extraordinary. We’re not entirely sure what that means, but it sounds good. The overall presentation is certainly evocative of their older cask strength releases, and the Classic Cut seems to occupy that place in the range.

Bottled: 2017

Cask Type: Sherry Oak

58.4% ABV / 75cl
