The Macallan

Born from extraordinary Oak Barrels

The Macallan was one of the first distillers of Scotland to be legally lincensed. Since then The Macallan has built a reputation as one one of the world’s leading single malt whiskies. 

The Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. The original name of the area was “Maghellan”, taken from the Gallic word “magh”, meaning fertile ground and “Ellan”, from the Monk St. Fillan – who held a close association with the church that stood in de grounds of The Macallan Estate until 1400. Farmers had been making whisky on their Speyside farms in the area for centuries, using their surplus barley during the quieter winter months.
