'The Mystery of Sherry Oak Maturation' For reasons not even science can wholly explain, whisky has always matured best in oak casks that have contained sherry. Due to increasing expense and scarcity, other distillers no longer insist on sherry casks. The Macallan directors do. Journeying annually to the bodegas of Jerez, Spain, they buy fresh oak casks into which they pour mature , carefully chosen sherries, then keep them for two further years in Spain before having them shipped over to be filled with whisky. The results are shown partly in The Macallan's rich golden colour, partly in the 'nose' and wholly we may venture?,... in the tumbler.

Macallan

The Macallan Distillery is probably one of the most famous brands in the whisky industry today. The distillery is three miles from Craigellachie which is the heart of the Speyside region. Even though Macallan is located in the heart of Speyside they have labeled it a Highland malt. The distillery was founded in 1824 and was named the ‘Elchies Distillery’. Macallan has 8 wash stills and 18 spirit stills and produces around 8,000,000 litres a year. In 2001 Macallan opened up a new visitor center. The tour that Macallan provides is very in depth and is great if you are just starting out and learning all about whisky. It shows all the processes and the maturation all the way down to microscopic slides so you can understand what happens. It is worth visiting.
