Macallan Edition No.1-6 Collection
It’s hard to believe today, but Macallan was predominantly used as a component malt in blends during much of the twentieth century. The distillery didn’t decide to focus on its single malt brand until the market crashed in the 1980s. This happened to be the peak of interest in the high-quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These are still some of the most sought-after items on the market. While Speyside neighbors Glenfiddich and Glenlivet continue to dominate global single malt sales, Macallan is by far the most sought after. So much so that in 2018, they had to build a fresh new distillery.
Within the Easter Elchies estate is a subterranean architectural wonder with 36 copper pot stills.
The Edition series came to an end in Autumn 2020, and this is the complete set.
