- The brand
This single malt is produced in limited quantities, using the finest ingredients right from the start of the production process through to its choice of the famous barley varieties Golden Promise and Optic. Its long fermentation and slow distillation result in a rich and concentrated distillate, of which only 16% is selected for maturation in casks of a rare quality, with the rest being run off as feints and foreshots. Its single malt is then aged, wholly or partially, in casks that have previously contained sherry. In fact, Macallan has even acquired various bodegas in Andalucia to guarantee this “tailored” maturation. Find out more
