The Macallan has unveiled the Exceptional Single Cask range – an unprecedented range which invites consumers to explore the diversity of styles of The Macallan, taking them on a virtual journey of discovery of the Whisky Maker’s bench.
This exclusive range of single cask whiskies showcases the depth and diversity of The Macallan. Each whisky reveals a particular character, a subtly different flavour or an aroma in the background, making each one unique.
The Macallan’s Exceptional Single Cask range presents a timeless moment and is inspired by these most extraordinary sensory discoveries. The range, an exploration into the captivating world of The Macallan’s Whisky Makers, entices customers to take a journey of discovery through this stunning array of Macallan whiskies sampled and bottled straight from the cask.
Geoff Kirk, Director of Prestige, The Macallan, said: “At the heart of The Macallan Estate sits the sample room, and within it the Whisky Maker’s bench; the place where inspiration and dedication come together in the creation of The Macallan single malt. Over years, and even centuries, an incredibly diverse range of whisky samples have graced the Whisky Maker’s bench. This stunning new range presents those particular cask samples which have taken our Whisky Makers by surprise. The Macallan’s Exceptional Single Cask range provides an opportunity to experience these moments.”
