Macallan Estate 70cl 43°
The Macallan Estate is a Single Malt created by Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess as a tribute to the work of the Macallan teams and to the heritage of the distillery in operation since 1824.
The barley for this whisky is grown directly at the distillery's Easter Elchies estate in the legendary Speyside region of Scotland. Distillation takes place only once a year for a week.
This unique The Macallan Estate bottling comes in a gift box featuring a hand-cut slate panel representative of the local Scottish landscape. Inside, aerial photographs showcase the estate's impressive barley fields on the banks of the beautiful River Spey.
This Single Malt Macallan offers a subtle citrus note that balances the traditional richness of Sherry. The result is a complex whisky with an extraordinarily long finish.
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.
