The quality of our exceptional oak
casks is the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality, natural colours and distinctive aromas and flavours of The Macallan. We control the whole journey from forest to cask for both our Spanish and American oak sherry seasoned casks. We import more than 80% of all new sherry seasoned oak casks from Spain and will invest more than £16m each year . Only The Macallan has access to the finest and scarcest casks in the industry. The
1824 Masters Series showcases our unique mastery of wood.
A celebration of first fill sherry seasoned oak casks handcrafted
by the master coopers at a single Spanish cooperage in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain. Spanish sherry butts and Spanish sherry puncheons, seasoned with Oloroso sherry and then filled with Macallan spirit in
a single year (In 2015 release, 1995).
The art of the Macallan whisky maker is encased in the exquisite craftsmanship of Lalique. Each decanter is individually numbered.
The result is timeless elegance, a classic Macallan.
