This limited collection of annual release whiskies fuse the artistry and expertise behind The Macallan’s whisky-making with creativity and culture. Each release in the series is unique and designed to create an extraordinary taste experience.


The Macallan Concept No. 1 is the first release in a new, limited edition series which celebrates the world’s visionaries by daring to disrupt the whisky making process. Created from whiskies matured first in sherry-seasoned oak casks and then in ex-bourbon casks, this whisky explores maturation more imaginatively. The unusual double-maturation process delivers a very different and truly memorable expression of The Macallan.

Traditionally, double-matured whisky is first matured in former bourbon barrels before being finished for a shorter period of time in sherry-seasoned casks. We chose to go against the norm by maturing in sherry-seasoned oak casks and then in first fill American bourbon barrels for an equal amount of time to create an exciting new flavour profile. As up to 80% of the whisky’s character and flavour comes from the wood, this represents an innovative decision to push the tradition-bound limits of whisky-making.

The Macallan Concept Number 2 arises from a collection of exceptional casks, producing a rich and rewarding multi-sensory experience. Sherry-seasoned American oak casks bring a rhythmic sweetness of vanilla, citrus and toffee. This is married with the rounded spiciness of Miguel Martin sherry casks, while ex-bourbon casks introduce harmonies of floral citrus and vanilla.

Bringing his unique perspective to the design of Concept Number 3, the release features some very special touches to celebrate their shared outlook and methodology – including the incorporation of the letter P for Polly in his bold, collage-style imagery. Many of the colours used are also found at The Macallan Estate, with blue representing the magical River Spey and red reflecting our sherry-seasoned oak casks.

Encased in a striking presentation box featuring David Carson’s unique designs for Concept Number 3, each bottle also features labelling designed by David along with a vibrant chevron symbol bearing his signature.


Created from predominantly first fill sherry seasoned American oak casks delivering a sweetness and spice, this vibrant single malt is balanced by a selection of European oak casks to add depth and richness.

Balance and freshness are achieved by specially selected refill and virgin oak casks. The ABV was developed specifically to be 40.8%, after both Polly and David realised that eight is their favourite number.
