Other Information

Undoubtably one of the most exciting collections released by The Macallan in history, "The Red Collection" features an outstanding array of vintages - from 40 to 78 year old Macallan, bottled in 2020. 

The 78 year old is the oldest expression ever to be released by The Macallan since the 72 year old Lalique "Genesis Decanter" which was released in 2018.

Macallan describe the Red Collection as “an exquisite range of distinguished and rare single malt Scotch whiskies, shaped by the actions of our founder Alexander Reid and key characters in our history, who have laid the foundations for our single malt today.  This collection celebrates the rich range of reds present naturally in every step of our process”.

The 78 year old is described as reflecting “deep respect for time, tradition and craftsmanship”. It is being presented by The Macallan lead whisky maker Sarah Burgess and was laid down decades ago in The Macallan’s “hand-picked oak casks”. Tasting notes describe its colour as “Sunset on the Spey”.

Its oak presentation box is crafted by hand in the UK, using the same sustainable European oak used to make The Macallan casks. The box is upholstered with sustainably sourced, soft Scottish leather from Bridge of Weir Leather.

A super rare and unique opportunity to own the oldest Macallan ever!
