THE MACALLAN DISTILLERY
The Macallan is a name synonymous with the
highest quality of whisky-making. Their humble
beginnings trace back to 1824 when Alexander
Reid, a local barley farmer and school teacher, leased
eight acres of Easter Elchies land to build a distillery.
Sculpted into the heart of Speyside’s natural and
unspoiled landscape, surrounded by rolling hills, the
mighty river Spey and plains of rich fertile land, it
was a model environment for producing the finest
of single malt expressions which were to become
adored across the world.
The Macallan is renowned for its stringent approach
to cask selection, managing the entire journey of the
oak tree from felling to coopering. Fundamental in
the character of The Macallan and the creation of
its rich spirit are their six pillars. These are the six
principles that underpin The Macallan’s unwavering
commitment to only the very best.
