The Macallan was one of the first distillers in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then we have built a reputation as one of the world’s leading single malt whiskies. The creation of The Macallan draws on the vital contributing influences of Spain, North America and Scotland - and of their respective natural raw materials, combined with traditional methods and craftsmanship.
All of our whiskies take 100% of their color from the wood in which they are matured. As wood is a natural product, each tree is different and in turn, imparts different flavours and colors to the whisky during maturation. The skill of the whisky makers ensures color is as consistent as possible from bottling to bottling, through the management and selection of the casks which provide the spectrum of natural color essential to The Macallan single malt.
