Macallan 50 Years Old - The Red Collection
50 Years in the Making
The Macallan Red Collection reflects the distilleries' deep respect for time, tradition, and craftsmanship. It is a celebration of the rich range of reds presents naturally in The Macallan—in every step of the process.
The distinctive red colour weaves its way through their history, starting with the name of the founder Alexander Reid—literally “The Red”, to The Macallan’s ‘Choice Old’ range released over a century ago in 1903, through to Allan Shiach marking vintage bottles of The Macallan with a red ribbon in the 1980s.
The Macallan Master Whisky Maker Kirsteen Campbell presents a peerless single malt whisky that has slowly matured over five extraordinary decades under the watchful eye of generations of whisky makers until it has reached this perfect moment of maturation. The ‘new make’ spirit from The Macallan’s small copper stills was laid down in hand-picked oak casks and left to mature for fifty years.
During these decades of slumber, the carefully selected wood shaped the unique character of the whisky delivering the natural colour, distinctive aromas and full flavours of this aged single malt.
The Macallan 50-year-old is made from sherry seasoned casks and bottled at 45.1%.
