An obsession with quality has been the hallmark of The Macallan since its founding by Alexander Reid on a plateau above the river Spey in north-east Scotland. The distillery is surrounded by a 485 acre estate with Easter Elchies House at its heart.
The Macallan was one of the first distillers in Scotland to be legally licensed. 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.
The reputation of The Macallan is built on a product of outstanding quality and distinctive character, founded upon a set of guiding principles.
