An obsession with quality has been the hallmark of The Macallan since its founding in 1824. From its home in Easter Elchies Estate, the distillery is renowned worldwide for its award-winning single malt.
The Red Collection
This range of remarkably rare single malt Scotch whiskies is inspired by the colour red and its deep and long-standing significance for The Macallan.
The red thread begins with Alexander Reid, the farmer and teacher who founded The Macallan in 1824. His surname means ‘the red one’ in Scots and was originally associated with red hair.
In 1903, owner Roderick Kemp launched The Macallan Choice Old range. It was reportedly shipped in cases labelled with distinctive red print to distinguish it from The Macallan’s existing whiskies, which featured black labelling.
Almost eight decades later, Allan Shiach, chairman of The Macallan at that time, tied a red ribbon around The Macallan’s then oldest vintages, dated 1938, 1940 and 1950.
A dream of old...
Inspired by the significance of the colour red throughout The Macallan's storied history, The Red Collection features a carefully curated selection of ongoing aged expressions and high aged guest releases.
