The Macallan logo

One of the most admired single malt distilleries

The Macallan was established by Alexander Reid in 1824


The Macallan Distillery is situated on a 458 acre Estate, with the historic Easter Elchies House at its heart. It is this 1700 manor house that embodies The Macallan logo.

Bordered by Scotland’s River Spey, with sheep and cattle grazing the pastures, over 90 acres of land are sown with exclusive Minstrel barley.

The smallest cut of distilled spirit is then selected to be matured in sherry-seasoned oak casks, creating the elixir’s rich aroma and colour.

Be sure to try The Macallan’s 12, 18 and 25-year-old malts, or explore the 1824 collection and special Limited Edition releases beloved by collectors.

Discover the Spirit of 1926

In 1926 Janet Harbinson, fondly known as ‘Nettie’, crafted the most valuable bottle of wine or spirit ever sold at auction; The Macallan 1926.


In 1926 Nettie Harbinson crafted what would become the most valuable bottle of wine or spirit ever sold at auction.

Janet Isabella Harbinson, fondly known as ‘Nettie’, was a woman guided by conviction and a belief in doing the next right thing.

She was fundamentally driven by this principle – especially when presented with a choice.

Without setting out to do so, she crafted the most valuable single bottle of wine or spirit ever sold at auction; The Macallan 1926. By doing the next right thing for herself and the community around her – she unconsciously made history. It is this quiet heroism which makes Janet’s story one worth telling.

Strong Foundations THE SIX PILLARS

The reputation of The Macallan is built on a product of outstanding quality and distinctive character, founded upon a set of guiding principles. From place to process, people and passion, the Six Pillars are the backdrop to The Macallan's unique spirit.


Built in 1700 from locally quarried sandstone for Captain John Grant, our Spiritual Home, Easter Elchies House, is a fine example of a Highland manor house. The 485-acre Macallan Estate lies in an area of natural beauty and is farmed sensitively, in harmony with the environment.


The Macallan’s Curiously Small Stills are amongst the smallest on Speyside. Their unique size and shape give the spirit maximum contact with the copper, helping to concentrate the ‘new make’ spirit and provide the rich, fruity, full-bodied flavours characteristic of The Macallan. There are 24 of these spirit stills, crafted from copper, each holding an initial ‘charge’ of 3,900 litres.


We carefully select the finest quality spirit from our stills to ensure we create the best single malt whisky. This finest cut ensures we produce our signature viscous mouth-feel and fruity aroma and flavour. This small portion, or ‘cut’ is incredibly selective and one of the finest in the industry. It is primarily responsible for the full-bodied richness of The Macallan new make spirit. This clear colourless spirit is selected at just under 70% alcohol by volume. This distinctly robust and characterful ‘new make’ spirit is the starting point for all Macallan.


Our exceptional oak casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colours and distinctive aromas and flavours of The Macallan. These oak casks are crafted to our own specifications and account for up to 80% of the final aromas and flavours of The Macallan. Because of this, we spend more per cask than any other distillery in sourcing, crafting, seasoning and caring for its casks.


All colour in The Macallan whiskies, bottled by the distillery, is natural. Only the interaction of the ‘new make’ spirit with the oak of the maturation casks delivers the rich and natural diversity of colour throughout the range, from light oak through to darkest mahogany. These natural colours remain ‘fixed’, as opposed to artificial colour which fades relatively quickly in bright sunlight. Great skill is required by the Master Whisky Maker to achieve consistency of natural colour from bottling to bottling.


From place and production, to people and passion. The Macallan is the result of such defining mastery and intricacy, it is unmatched; peerless in each and every way.
