Taste Five Decades of History.

Macallan is shorthand for elegant, and no wonder Mr. Bond loved it. Almost two centuries old distillery has the knowledge, experience, and imagination to pull of some of the greatest expressions on this side of the Solar system. Maybe it’s all in their classified specially cultured barley and state-of-the-art gear; maybe it’s simply magic.

Now, if you’re around since 1824, you can do some impressive things – like releasing a 50-year-old Scotch! The Beatles came out with Hey Jude and we were a year away from moonwalking (not the Jackson’s kind, the real one) when this Spirit started its maturing. Now it’s ready and it’s something we haven’t seen before. Half a century in European sherry oak butt brought out only the best in this Macallan – rich and complex color, lush vanilla-forward fruity and spicy flavors, and just the right amount of peat. Truly, history in a bottle.
