The Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. Now owned by the Edrington Group, The Macallan prides itself on its Six Pillars, which include its curiously small stills, very narrow 'cut' of new make spirit and exceptional cask management. It is the most sought after whisky for collectors, regularly setting records at auctions all round the world.

Made from a marriage of less than 100 casks which creates an expression full of rich peat smoke and sherry goodness.

Matured in 1st Fill Sherry Casks with no age statement and bottled at 48% abv.
