The Macallan Distillery
In 1824, the distillery was licensed to Alexander Reid, but started life as the Elchies Distillery on 6 acres of rented ground. The estate now covers 390 acres of which 90 acres are sown in the spring with our own exclusive minstrel barley variety to make the whisky. The river Spey, one of Scotland’s most famous salmon rivers, borders the estate to the south and south-east.
From its founding, through the subsequent owners of the distillery in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and into the present century, The distillery has been recognised for its outstanding quality above all else. Today this remains the foundation for the worldwide fame of The Macallan making their whiskies highly sought after and collectible.
