The Macallan Rare Cask is the most diverse and intricate Macallan whisky; a reinterpretation of the classic profile achieved through the widest palette of cask styles. Crafted from 16 different cask styles, predominantly first fill, American and Spanish oak of various cask size –butts, hogsheads and puncheons, made by multiple cask manufacturers and seasoned by multiple sherry bodegas to our exact specifications. Some casks used in the creation of Rare Cask will never be used again as they are from cooperages and bodegas that no longer exist.
Far less than 1% of the casks maturing at the distillery have been identified as fitting to bestow the Rare Cask name. The result is unadulterated product complexity

About The Distillery
The Macallan is one of the most highly revered whisky brands in the world. It is the third largest selling single malt whisky in the world and the second largest by value. The name Macallan is thought to have derived from the two Gaelic words, ‘Magh’, and ‘Ellan’, meaning ‘fertile ground’ and ‘of St Fillan’ respectively – St Fillan is thought to be an Irish monk that spread the Christian word throughout Scotland in the 8th Century.
