The Macallan unveils 'Estate' single malt

A new single malt, Estate, has been launched by the Edrington-owned The Macallan Distillery. 

The new release contains spirit distilled with barley grown at Easter Elchies estate, the home of the brand.

Edrington claims that producing the new expression represented an opportunity to experience a single malt containing spirit made from The Macallan’s home-grown barley, which is distilled just once a year over the course of a single week. Previously, this spirit has been limited to The Macallan’s most exclusive releases.

Sarah Burgess, whisky maker for The Macallan, says: “Our Easter Elchies estate lies within the legendary Speyside region of Scotland, a place of timeless natural beauty, and a place that we are proud to call home. 

“With its wonderful sweet citrus hints and warming wood spice, The Macallan Estate is a rich, satisfying and complex spirit that pays homage to the fertile Speyside lands where The Macallan is located and celebrates the unrivalled craftsmanship for which we have been known since 1824.”

The Macallan Estate is presented in an elegant gift box featuring landscape-inspired designs and it reflects the natural stones found on our estate, with an inlay of slate. Inside, aerial photography showcases the estate’s impressive barley fields on the banks of the beautiful River Spey. Priced at £195, Estate will be available to buy from selected whisky specialists from July.
