The Macallan Quest
The Macallan Quest is fully matured in four different, but complementary cask types. The Macallan Quest begins a long journey of discovery to explore the influence of sherry seasoned oak casks. American bourbon casks are combined with hand-picked, sherry seasoned European and American oak casks, and The Macallan hogsheads, to create a spirit of worldly sophistication. Characterised by the classic fresh flavours of citrus fruits and sweet vanilla oak, this is the single malt whisky that creates a genuine expectation of further exploration and enjoyment.
The Macallan Quest Collection celebrates our enduring desire to journey further and seek out the extraordinary oak casks for which The Macallan is world-renowned. The Collection tells the story of Macallans unrivalled, untiring commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit. Each expression is a new chapter exploring the casks, flavours and aromas that begins in the forests and cooperages of distant lands and culminates in a singular Macallan experience. A rich sensory experience that reveals how hand-picked, sherry seasoned oak casks make the greatest contribution to the superlative quality, natural colour and full flavours at the heart of this single malt whisky and The Macallan Quest Collection.
The Macallan Six Pillars
- The Spiritual Home
Easter Elchies house proudly watches over the distillery in Speyside, Scotland. Built in 1700, this Jacobean Manor house is the Macallan's spiritual home.
- Curiously Small Stills
The Macallan's curiously small and uniquely shaped copper stills help concentrate the flavour of the 'New Make' spirit.
- The Finest Cut
The Macallan takes one of the finest new make spirit 'cuts' of any distillery in Scotland - typically a mere 16%
- Exceptional Oak Casks
The Macallan Double Cask is exclusively matured in sherry seasoned oak casks from America and Europe. These casks are filled with aged sherries in SPain and left to season before receiving new make spirit.
- Natural Colour
The interaction of spirit and wood alone delivers the variety of rich and natural colours that distinguish the Macallan range.
- Peerless Spirit
The Macallan is celebrated far and wide by experts and discerning drinkers as the world's most precious whisky.
