Macallan Whisky Maker's Edition 1930s Propeller Plane / Nick Veasey Classic Travel
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.
Launched in 2009, the Whisky Maker's Edition was part of the Macallan travel retail exclusive The 1824 Collection. The range was discontinued and replaced by the Quest Collection in 2017.
This limited edition packaging of the range by Macallan features Nick Veasey's X-Ray photography on their boxes.
