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.
The Exceptional Cask series:
Macallan’s Exceptional Cask series first appeared on the scene in 2017 and is exclusively comprised of single cask releases, bottled using what the distillery considers to be their finest stock. Rather than being released in annual batches, new additions to the ongoing series are added as-and-when they’re discovered by the distillery’s team of Whisky Makers (dream job). With a wide variety of vintages, and an age range spanning six decades (at time of writing), the Exceptional Cask series feels like a spiritual successor to the legendary Fine & Rare collection.
