Macallan

Over the past four decades, Macallan has built probably the best reputation for quality malt whisky; rare expressions can change hands for thousands of pounds, and prices for such bottles are continuously going up.

Macallan Distillery History

Macallan has built its enviable reputation by focusing on the fact that they mature their core range in 100% sherry oak barrels.

For centuries, farmers in the area of Easter Elchies House have been distilling whisky in the winter from barley they have grown on their own land. At the nearby ford across the river Spey, cattlemen (‘drovers’) taking their cattle to the markets in the south would stop to rest and take refreshment before crossing the river. Their refreshment would have included whisky distilled on the local farms.
