For nearly two centuries, The Macallan has prided themselves on distilling the finest golden spirits possible. The distillery was founded by Alexander Reid in 1824. Reid was a barley farmer and school teacher known for distilling barley during the winter season when crops needed little attention. As one of the first legally recognized distilleries in Scotland, The Macallan carved a name for itself early on by opening up trade with other countries.
Fast forward a couple hundred years and the distillery still represents the highest standard of quality Scotch whisky imaginable. The Macallan distillery produces a decent selection of fine Scotch whiskeys in a variety of wood casks which distinctly lends to the unique flavors found in each batch. The Macallan is separated by four main different types of casks: The Macallan Fine Oak, 8 to 30 year bourbon; The Macallan Sherry Oak, 10 to 30 year sherry; The 1824 Collection, select oak and ages; and The Macallan Double cask, 12-year old oak.
