Description

An extremely limited bottling from the Macallan distillery specially selected for The Scottish Gantry.

It may be hard to imagine today, but for much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectible on the market. While global single malt sales volume is still lead by Speyside neighbours, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, Macallan is easily the most sought after. So much so in fact, that they had to open a brand new distillery in 2018, a subterranean architectural masterpiece within the Easter Elchies estate, boasting 36 copper pot stills.

This Macallan was distilled in June 1993 and laid to rest in single cask #6519 before being finished in a Oloroso sherry barrel. The whisky was finally bottled in November 2019. The bottle comes displayed in a classic wooden engraved box along with a small certificate of authenticity.

One of only 201 bottles produced.
