Macallan Distillery is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Craigellachie, Moray. They are generally considered the second or third highest-selling single malt scoth whisky, next to Glenfiddich and Glenlivet.
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.
Their 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 their own specifications and account for up to 80% of the final aromas and flavours of The Macallan.
