Description

The most collectable single malt in the world, Macallan currently holds the record for the most expensive single malt ever sold at auction. 

The distillery is owned by the Edrington Group who purchased it in 1999 from Highland Distillers. 

This bottling was distilled in 1957 and bottled Campbell, Hope and King Ltd who were based in Edinburgh in the 19th century & into 20th century. The company also had premises in New Elgin from which the relationship with Macallan would have blossomed. Prior to the 1980s the bottling of Macallans product was subcontracted out to independent bottlers.
