About The Macallan An Estate, A Community And A Distillery

The Macallan Anecdotes of Ages is a limited edition collection that celebrates a unique collaboration between the art and whisky worlds – it's created in collaboration between The Macallan Lead Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess and the acclaimed British pop artist Sir Peter Blake. The painter, sculptor, and printmaker designed album covers for British rock icons like The Beatles and The Who. The bottles feature meaningful art inspired by the history, community, and The Macallan estate.

This is a special single malt whisky, created by The Macallan Lead Whisky Maker Sarah Burgess who was inspired by Sir Peter Blake's character. Dedicated to Sir Peter Blake's visit to The Macallan Estate on the River Spey, this complex yet perfectly balanced concoction begins with a gorgeous cinnamon hue. The nose is rich in dried fruits and spices with a touch of orange and clove, leading to a flavorful palate with dried fruits, cracked black pepper, treacle, accents of vanilla and orange oil. The finish is long and oaky with cinnamon and cacao notes. This thoughtful love letter to a decades-long partnership and whisky is a rare tipple with an impeccable pedigree, and it tastes just like it. The label was digitally designed by Sir Peter himself.

Situated on a ridge above the banks of the River Spey, the Easter Elchies House has been the spiritual home of The Macallan for over three centuries. In 1820, Alexander Reid began renting the home from Sir Lewis Grant of Grant. Reid was a farmer, and soon after he sowed the fields surrounding the home with barley, Reid established the first licensed distillery on the estate, which he named Macallan after an ancient church that had been destroyed by fire during the 15th century. In the winter — when there was little activity on the farm — Reid would ferment and distill his excess grains into whisky, which was often drunk straight from the still or sold to travelers passing through the town.

Today, the Macallan Estate encompasses 370 acres, 95 of which are devoted to the production of the Macallan Estate's Minstrel barley (a single acre produces about 2.5 tons of barley each year, enough to yield 1,800 bottles of The Macallan). In addition, the distillery contracts with farmers to purchase barley that is low in nitrogen and high in starch, resulting in a rich and oily whisky.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)


Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
