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.

It's unknown where the Macallan name comes from, but there are a few possibilities circling around. The most popular one is that it comes from two words in the Gallic language. “Magh” which refers to a fertile piece of ground and “Eilean” which curiously enough means, “of Saint Fillans.” Over time “Magh Eilean” became Anglicised as Macallan.
Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made in Scotland using a pot still distillation process at a single distillery, with malted barley as the only grain ingredient. It must be matured in oak casks in Scotland for at least three years (most Single Malts are matured longer, though).
90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
Scotland is home to more than 20 million casks of maturing Whisky. That’s four for every person living there. Nuts!
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
