FROM THE BARREL
Every single malt from The Macallan reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and distilling for which The Macallan has been known since it was founded in 1824. It is an expression of our enduring desire to go beyond the ordinary, to seek the extraordinary and to create unrivalled single malts.
With an unwavering commitment to making sherry casks a fundamental part of The Macallan single malt, our reputation for seeking the extraordinary serves as testament to the exceptional oak casks in which we mature our spirit. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the careful supervision of The Macallan's Master of Wood, these carefully selected casks meet the exacting specifications of The Macallan.
