Macallan’s popular 18-year-old Sherry Oak expression matured exclusively in selected sherry oak casks from Jerez, Spain. This 2014 release contains whiskies distilled in 1996 and in earlier years. The Speyside distillery Macallan, originally known as the Elchies Distillery, was founded in 1824 by local farmer Alexander Reid. The distillery is currently in the hands of the Edrington Group, who acquired previous owner Highland Distillers in 1999. Did you know Macallan’s spirit stills are some of the smallest in all of Scotland? These ‘Curiously Small Stills’ maximize contact with the copper and produce a delicious full-bodied spirit.
