Macallan 1874 Replica (MC)
MC445-031*

In every respect The 1874 reflects both the character and appearance of the original. Today, the "zest of orange" note in particular is only evident in a small percentage of casks, which means that availability of The 1874 will always be strictly limited. Selected on the basis of flavour rather than age the whisky is also allowed to marry for a considerable time so as to develop its full potential. While age is not a deciding factor it is likely that a typical bottling will contain some casks in excess of 20 years old. Uncertain of the strength at which the original was bottled, The 1874 is bottled at 45% - equivalent to 80 on the old British Sykes scale of measurement, the strength generally used for distillery bottling’s in the early 1900's. The bottle itself has been faithfully reproduced using a part-mechanical process to replicate as closely as possible the quality and individuality of century-old glass. The label reflects the stylish simplicity of Roderick Kemp's original which has so well stood the test of time.

As with the majority of these boxes, the wire hinges are broken yet still intact.

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.


"David Robertson took a small sample of the whisky, nosed it and made all sorts of taste profile notes... then... tried to recreate that exact same style of whisky. It was released in its original 1874 vintage packaging..."
