This celebration of wood highlights the oak casks which deliver 100% natural colour and account for up to 80% of the character of The Macallan.

The Macallan’s commitment to wood is unrivalled in the industry. From each acorn and individual tree, through to the selection of the sherry bodega that seasons the cask to their specifications, this obsession ensures The Macallan produces exceptional whiskies with rich colour and flavour delivered from the casks.
