The Macallan was one of the first distillers in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then we have 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 Gallic 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.
Macallan's Triple Cask range was launched in 2018, taking the place of the Fine Oak range. This is the entry level expression from the series, matured for 12 years and drawn from a combination of European sherry seasoned casks, American sherry seasoned casks and American ex-bourbon casks.

The Macallan Triple Cask Matured 12 Years Old 採用三款合一的醇酒製成，分別在歐洲雪莉橡木桶、美國雪莉橡木桶和美國波本橡木原酒桶中熟成。裝桶完成後，逐漸熟成的醇酒在相同的酒桶內靜置 12 年，隨後再運用精細而專業的手法，將此種風味繁複的橡木桶組合融合在一起，創造出此款鮮活的單一麥芽威士忌。
