The Macallan Estate is the Whisky Maker’s tribute to their heritage and home. It is an extremely special new single malt containing rare spirit from a proportion of the barley grown at Easter Elchies estate, which is distilled just once a year over the course of a single week. Created by Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess, The Macallan Estate is a celebration of the single malt’s peerless provenance and heritage.
The 485-acre Easter Elchies estate is set within the legendary Speyside region of Scotland, where The Macallan has been creating extraordinary single malts since 1824. Its carefully tended barley fields are located on the banks of the River Spey, overlooked by The Macallan’s new award-winning distillery. The Macallan Estate is presented in a striking gift pack featuring a hand cut slate panel representative of the Scottish landscape of our home. Inside, aerial photography showcases the estate’s impressive barley fields on the banks of the beautiful River Spey.
The Macallan Estate delivers a subtle hint of citrus which balances the traditional sherried richness, resulting in a complex single malt with an extraordinarily long finish. Estate offers a unique opportunity to experience rare spirit made from the precious estate-grown barley and honours the birthplace of every bottle of The Macallan.
The Macallan Estate will be available throughout the UK, Americas and selected countries in Europe this year. The Macallan Estate is priced in domestic markets at £195.00 (70cl) and the final price will be subject to local taxes and duties. We have requested information on expected duty-free availability and prices.
FROM THE CASK
Every Macallan single malt reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit for which The Macallan has been known since it was established in 1824. It is an expression of the enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create peerless single malts.
With an unflinching commitment to put sherry casks at the heart of The Macallan single malt, The Macallan’s reputation for the extraordinary is testament to the exceptional oak casks in which they mature the spirit. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of Wood, these hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of The Macallan Master Distiller and his team.
Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same casks for the necessary number of years it needs to be worthy of its destined Macallan expression. It is these oak casks that make the greatest contribution to the quality, natural colour and distinctive aromas and flavours which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.
