About The Macallan
The Macallan prides itself on its Six Pillars, which it testifies are being the six reasons to its success. The first is its spiritual home, the Easter Elchies House on the 485-acre Macallan Estate. The second pillar is its small stills which help concentrate the spirit and provide its characteristic rich flavour. A very select portion of spirit is then taken to form the starting point of the whisky. The liquid is then matured in high quality oak casks, these casks providing the rich, completely natural colour. This combination of location, method and experience help create an unparalleled single malt.
The Macallan is the drink of choice for James Bond (and a huge list of other on-screen characters).
In July 2019, its new £140 million distillery and visitor centre opened on the Easter Elchies Estate. It made the shortlist for the Stirling Prize for excellence in architecture.
The unique stills are very famous. You may have seen them before on the back of your Bank of Scotland Ten Pound note.
A place where two worlds combine: subtle tradition and high-tech ingenuity. Set in the heart of The Easter Elchies Estate, the new £140 million Macallan Distillery is a fitting home for the world's most luxurious spirit.
