Small stills, BIG Scotch.

The Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher, in Craigellachie, Moray. Macallan is one of the first legally licensed distilleries in Scotland, one of the World's most cherished Single Malts, and the second best-selling Single Malt in the World.

What plays a big part in their success is the fact that they use curiously small stills, the smallest in Speyside in fact. The unique shape and size gives their liquid gold maximum contact with the copper, contributing to the new make spirit and delivers those rich, fruity and full-bodied flavors that are characteristic of The Macallan. These stills are so famous, in fact, that they have appeared on the back of a Bank of Scotland £10 banknote, how about that. Also interesting is that they take only 16% of the final distillation from the stills to fill their casks. And they uses mostly Sherry casks from Jerez, Spain.

The Macallan Amber is one of four Macallan Single Malts featured in their bold 1824 Series. This single malt quartet was matured exclusively in Sherry casks and the bottles bear no age statement. Amber is the the 3nd darkest of the four, so it is believed to be aged longest after Sienna and Ruby.

With the 1824 series Macallan doesn't aim to impress with an age statement, rather focusing your attention to the quality of the oak, the ingredients and the craftsmanship that goes into creating a single malt.
