The Macallan Single Malt Scotch Whisky: A Master in its Class

Mar. 24th, 2010 | Comments 0 | Make a Comment   
Food & Spirits: The Macallan Master Malt is truly a master. As part of the Scottish single malt heritage, it continues to hold its own as one of the finest malts in the world, amid an ever changing climate of luxury spirits.

Legally licensed in 1824, The Macallan has been making fine scotch for more than 200 years. The heritage of spirit and wood has given The Macallan a lengthy history of creation using six pillars:

The spiritual home: The Macallan distillery in Speyside, Scotland

Curiously Small Stills: The Macallan uses the smallest copper stills to be found in the Speyside, ancestral home of single malt Scotch production

The Finest Cut: The cut refers to the amount of distilled spirit that makes from the still into the cask for maturation

Exceptional Oak Casks: Master of Wood George Epsie and his elite team ensure that each cask is handmade in Spain and handpicked in America

The Natural Color: The Macallan color is the result of the interaction of wood and spirit

The Peerless Spirit: Master of Spirit Bob Dalgarno and his team ensure that each cask is bottled at its prime.

You can find more about The Macallan and even pick up a bottle at the official site.
