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.
Given the stellar reputation Macallan have cultivated over the years, they’d probably be forgiven for resting on their laurels and adopting an attitude of “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it”. The Edition Series confirms that very much isn’t the case, with its willingness to look beyond the traditional cask types favoured by the distillery. Each of the six expressions is crafted from a unique combination of casks selected to push the boundaries of what whisky drinkers have come to expect from Macallan.
Edition No1 has been crafted using eight different styles of European and American oak casks.
48% ABV / 75cl
Please note many Edition No1s contain abnormal amounts of sediment. This is a natural by-product of the maturing process and is not a defect, therefore no refunds will be given.
