Macallan 25 Year Old Single Malt Whisky
One of the original farm distilleries of Speyside, Macallan became legal in 1824 when Alexander Reid obtained (or was persuaded to obtain) one of the new licences issued after the passing of the 1823 Excise Act.
The plant has continually been expanded from its original wooden shed with two stills. Most recently going under a massive renovation in 2018, completely redesigning the experience for visitors.
Today Macallan is owned by Edrington and is considered one of the more collectable Scottish whiskies.
