Macallan Boutique Collection 2020 Release Single Malt Whisky

The Macallan was one of the first distillers in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then, Macallan has built a reputation as one of the world’s leading single malt whiskies. The creation of The Macallan draws on the vital contributing influences of Spain, North America and Scotland - and of their respective natural raw materials, combined with traditional methods and craftsmanship.
The Macallan distillery was founded by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. The original name of the area was “Maghellan”, taken from the Gaelic word “magh”, meaning fertile ground and “Ellan”, from the Monk St.Fillan - who held a close association with the church that stood in the 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.

The 2020 edition of this popular release was available exclusively at the Macallan Boutiques, a small selection of travel retail outlets at airports in London, Dubai and Taipei.
This bottle was drawn from a selection of matured casks reserved only for distinguished guests visiting Easter Elchies House which is the spiritual home of the Macallan
