The Macallan Estate Pioneers Experience returns

The Macallan Estate has announced the return of an immersive theatre experience telling the story of its rich heritage.

The Macallan Estate Pioneers Experience, incorporating live performance on the banks of the River Spey, is the first experience of its kind launched by a single malt Scotch whisky distillery.

It explores The Macallan's 485-acre estate and brings to life notable characters from its past. These include Captain John Grant, the man who realised the whisky-making potential of the Easter Elchies Estate (home to The Macallan Distillery since 1824), and Roderick and Katherine Kemp, who took over The Macallan Distillery in 1892.

The outdoor experience launches on Saturday 16 July and will run until Sunday 7 August, with tickets available to purchase now at As well as live performance, the three-hour experience will also see guests explore areas of The Macallan Distillery not usually open to the public, including Warehouse No 7, one of its oldest traditional dunnage warehouses.

Stuart Cassells, general manager of The Macallan Estate, said: "The Macallan Estate Pioneers Experience is one of the most exciting events in our calendar, and we're proud to announce its return for 2022. Last summer's run was a huge success, with plenty of fun along the way, and we’re sure this year will be no exception.

"There is no finer way to delve into our fascinating heritage here at The Macallan, with the help of Debora Weston and a team of extraordinary actors from across Scotland."
