Macallan n°6 70cl 43°
Macallan n°6 is part of the Masters Series 1824 range that brings together the finest of Macallan expressions in decanters with a prestigious and refined design.
This expression is rich and complex, made from first fill oak barrels impregnated with Sherry. These casks were elaborated in Spain by the master craftsmen of Jerez de la Frontera and selected within the same cooperage to guarantee the quality and the unique character of this bottling.
The latter offers a rich and powerful tasting with a strong presence of spicy aromas, dried fruits brought by the aging in Sherry barrels with the typical character of the house Macallan.
This Single Malt is presented in a magnificent Lalique crystal decanter whose refined craftsmanship highlights the art of making this whisky.
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.
