You can almost hear the heartbeat of whisky as Macallan lies in the central district of whisky making territory. This distillery which was built in 1824 near the river Spey in a tranquil Speyside setting is owned by Edrington & William Grant & Sons. The distillery boasts 18 operational stills helping the distillery produce over 6,000,000 litres of whisky per year. The water used to make this whisky is taken from local bore holes.
From this distillery we should expect lots of toffee, dried fruits and sherry. Oak and smoke and wonderfully smooth. One of the most famous single malt whiskies in the world. Exclusively sherry seasoned whisky with the perfect balance of European and American oak maturation to create a distinctive American oak style – sweet, honeyed and rounded.
