About the distillery
The Macallan distillery is a single malt Scotch whisky distillery in Craigellachie, Moray. The Macallan Distillers Ltd, is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Edrington Group which purchased the brand from Highland Distillers in 1999.
Released in 1996 to mark the 35th Anniversary of Private Eye magazine, this is possibly one of the most sought after and collectable bottles of Macallan.
The unique screen-printed label has been designed by the legendary gonzo illustrator of Private Eye magazine Ralph Steadman.
The vatting used in this whisky produced 5,000 bottles and included one cask from 1961 (#1580).
The gold top capsule is very rarely seen on this bottle - they are normally black. This edition was part of a small run of bottles sold exclusively at the Fortnum & Mason store in London.
This is bottle number 971.
