Macallan is one of the oldest licensed distilleries in Scotland. Known as the ‘Rolls Royce among malts’, Macallan is one of the most sought-after whiskies for collectors, and for good reason too.
This contributes to the superior quality and richness of the whisky they produce, but no whisky reaches that sort of status without quality casks. This is where Macallan excels again, being the only Scotch producer with a Master of Wood. Did we mention that they exclusively use water from springs from beneath the estate and that their stills are so famous that they appear on the Scottish ten pound note? It's a winner.
Is Macallan a luxury whisky?There's no definitive answer, as luxury is a relative term. But generally speaking, yes, Macallan is considered a luxury whisky. It's made from high-quality ingredients and it's one of the most expensive brands on the market. That said, there are plenty of whiskies that are pricier than Macallan. So it really depends on your personal preferences and budget.
Where does Macallan whisky originate?Macallan whisky is made in the Speyside region of Scotland. The water used in the whisky comes from the River Spey, which is why the whisky has such a smooth taste.
