Macallan Quest Liter 40°
The first whisky from the Quest collection, this Single Malt explores maturation to offer original flavours and textures. Macallan Quest is a fresh and lively whisky. It offers a typical distillery character with unique touches.
With this expression, The Macallan wanted to pay tribute to its explorers who travel more than 20,000 miles around the world in search of better oaks for its refinements. Macallan Quest has benefited from aging in four different but complementary types of casks to offer a new discovery.
American Bourbon casks are combined with meticulously selected European and American oak barrels, as well as small 250-liter Hogsheads, to develop a profile with flavours of fresh citrus and sweet oak vanilla.
With its packaging, Quest represents the beginning of a journey where the only limit of the world seems to be the blue sky.
The Macallan distillery is nestled on the banks of the river Spey, at the heart of Glenlivet, cradle of the great malts.
Located near Graigellachie, the Macallan distillery obtained its first license to distil thanks to Alexander Reid. It was purchased by James Stewart in 1886 (from Glen Spey distillery) who undertook its reconstruction. In 1892, Roderick Kemp took over the ownership of the old farm distillery. It stayed in the Kemp’s family until 1996. Within 10 years (1965 to 1975), the number of stills at Macallan rose from 6 to 21.
The success, brand and popularity of The Macallan are established on the exceptional quality of production, as Macallan maintained traditional methods of whisky elaboration.
All of The Macallan production comes from the same distillery, which makes it a Single Malt. The Macallan is today the fifth best-selling malt in the world. The six golden rules of The Macallan are the reason why it is today the Rolls of Single Malts, according to the widely recognized Harrod’s Guide.
