Description

Macallan's Six Pillars - The Six Pillars embody all that is unique to The Macallan. Collectively they underpin the exceptional craftsmanship, renowned quality and rich character of their single malt whisky. 

  • Estate: The Macallan Estate, the origins of which date back to 1543, is situated in the heart of the Speyside region of Scotland.
  • Curiously Small Stills: During distillation, the distinct size and shape of their Curiously Small Spirit Stills contribute a rich and fruity character to their new make spirit.
  • Exceptional Oak Casks: Worthy of their name, their Exceptional Oak Casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality and distinctive aromas and flavours of The Macallan.
  • Sherry Seasoned: The Macallan maintains its tradition of maturing whisky in oak casks which are seasoned with sherry wine in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain.
  • Natural Colour: From the lightest gold to the deepest mahogany, the colours of The Macallan whiskies are 100% natural.
  • Mastery: Heritage, craftsmanship and creativity. An uncompromising commitment to excellence. Their people and their mastery define The Macallan.

The return of the age statement honours these distinctive global travel exclusive releases. The Colour Collection is a range of exceptional whiskies, celebrating two pillars on which The Macallan legacy is built: Natural Colour and Sherry Seasoning. It is composed of 12, 15, 18, 21 and 30-year-old expressions.

Captured through the eyes of American Artist and Graphic Designer David Carson, who collaborated with The Macallan to design the stylish packaging and campaign artwork. His innate ability to distil complexity into a harmonious blend of creativity made him very fitting for this collection. Each bottle's packaging colour has been cleverly chosen to complement the golden oak tone of the whisky within. 

The Colour Collection 18-year-old presents whisky which has been matured in American oak casks, harmoniously complemented with a subtle inclusion of European Oak.
