Hidden in a fold of wooded hills, lapped by the waters of the Ringorm Burn as it hurries on its way to meet the mighty River Spey, stands Easter Elchies House. This ancient Manor sits at the heart of the Macallan Estate and is spiritual home to the world's most precious whisky. So, what is the secret of this legendary Single Malt? For centuries The Macallan has been distilled by generations of master craftsmen, in particularly small, hand beaten copper stills. And, whilst other distillers no longer insist on using Sherry oak casks, at the Macallan this costly tradition is maintained.
