The Macallan Estate is the Whisky Maker’s tribute to our heritage and home. It is an extremely special new single malt containing rare spirit from a proportion of the barley grown at Easter Elchies estate, which is distilled just once a year over the course of a single week. Created by Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess, The Macallan Estate is a celebration of the single malt’s peerless provenance and heritage.
The 485-acre Easter Elchies estate is set within the legendary Speyside region of Scotland, where The Macallan has been creating extraordinary single malts since 1824. Its carefully tended barley fields are located on the banks of the River Spey, overlooked by The Macallan’s new award-winning distillery. The Macallan Estate is presented in a striking gift pack featuring a hand cut slate panel representative of the Scottish landscape of our home. Inside, aerial photography showcases the estate’s impressive barley fields on the banks of the beautiful River Spey.
The Macallan Estate delivers a subtle hint of citrus which balances the traditional sherried richness, resulting in a complex single malt with an extraordinarily long finish. Estate offers a unique opportunity to experience rare spirit made from our precious estate-grown barley and honours the birthplace of every bottle of The Macallan.
" Distilled with a portion of barley grown on the distillery’s Easter Elchies estate. The nose detects quite intense sherry, plus black forest cake, then warm leather and fresh-squeezed orange juice. Full sherry notes on the palate, with new leather, marzipan, cherry liqueur, furniture polish, and dark chocolate. The finish yields bitter chocolate, licorice, nutmeg, and tingling wood spices." - Gavin Smith, Whisky Advocate
