For 300 years the Easter Elchies House, spiritual home of The Macallan, has stood on the banks of the Spey as a symbol of Scottish fortitude, a monument against the ravages of time. Dating from 1700, the Jacobean Manor is the same house that is depicted on The Macallan's packaging. Outside Easter Elchies House, a holly tree flourishes. Amazingly this tree dates back to the earliest days of the house.
Farming still continues on the estate; in late summer the fields around Easter Elchies grow rich and golden with their own harvest. Golden Promise Barley, one of the vital ingredients in the creation of our spirit, continues to be grown on Macallan land to this day.
The Macallan Cask Strength was introduced in the USA in 2002 for the lovers of both Macallan and Cask Strength whiskies. Bob Dalgarno and his team of tasters worked hard to select the correct balance of sherry casks to create a strong, powerful, and complex whisky.
