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.

Nose: notes of dried fruits, ginger and caramel. Rich orange with hints of cloves and nutmeg.

Palate: rich in raisins with hints of caramel, vanilla and ginger, balanced by woody spices and tangy citrus fruits.

Finish: notes of hot spices with ginger turning into a sweet orange.
