Description

History

The Macallan was one of the first distilleries to have a regular license in Scotland, and one of the first to seek absolute quality in the whiskeys produced. The company’s success is based on the collaboration with other countries such as Spain, North America and Scotland for the supply of wood and other natural raw materials, as well as the use of traditional methods and craftsmanship that has remained almost unchanged since the dawn of the agency. The distillery was founded by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and teacher, in 1824, in Craigellachie in the Speyside region of Scotland. The name comes from the name of the area “Maghellan”, which in turn derives from the Gallic word “magh” meaning land and “Ellan”, the name of the monk St. Fillan in turn connected to the historic church within the Macallan estates since 1400. As already mentioned, the choice of barrel is and has always been an element of fundamental importance for the company: 80% of the character of a Macallan whiskey depends on this element. In fact, the oak barrels are selected according to the specifications of the Master of Wood for toasting and seasoning and then re-evaluated together with the Master Distiller. The other elements that contribute to the great quality of Macallan are the area, the majestic 1700 Macallan estate which extends over approximately 390 acres, the 24 copper stills among the smallest in the region, the craftsmanship of the Master Distiller and Master Blender , the aforementioned first category wooden barrels and the fact that the very intense colors of the distillates obtained are all natural colors, the result of ageing.

Production method

The Macallan 12 Year Sherry Wood is fully aged in European oak casks sourced from selected harvesting areas in Spain and France. The casks undergo a sherry wine maturation process for a minimum of two years before being used to age the whisky. This whiskey features a flavor where the vanilla sweetness of the wood blends perfectly with the spice of the European oak, creating a long and velvety finish.
