Macallan Whisky

 

The Macallan is one of the most highly revered whisky brands in the world. It is the third largest selling single malt whisky in the world and the second largest by value. The name Macallan is thought to have derived from the two Gaelic words, ‘Magh’, and ‘Ellan’, meaning ‘fertile ground’ and ‘of St Fillan’ respectively – St Fillan is thought to be an Irish monk that spread the Christian word throughout Scotland in the 8th Century. The Macallan distillery is located in Craigellachie, Moray in the Highlands of Scotland were it was founded back in 1824, by Alexander Reid. As the Macallan’s reputation grew, its sales continued to increase throughout the 20th Century and major expansion took place between 1951 and 1963. In 1999, a majority shareholding was bought by The Edrington Group.
