The Macallan single malt whisky, distributed by Maxxium UK, has unveiled its newest expression, The Macallan Rare Cask. Rare because some of the casks used in its creation will never be used again.
Rare Cask, presented in packaging designed by Brand Image, is crafted from a small proportion of maturing Spanish and American oak casks at The Macallan distillery. Bob Dalgarno, the master whisky maker says: “Rare Cask is about firstly identifying a selection of casks which can truly be called rare. Each of the cask styles result in different character, so each imparts their own distinct influence on the final whisky.”
With a rich mahogany red hue, The Macallan Rare Cask showcases two of The Macallan’s greatest strengths, exceptional oak casks and natural colour. The Macallan Rare Cask is available from specialist whisky retailers including The Whisky Shop and has a RRP of £200.
