THE MACALLAN
FINE & RARE 1955

1955

The Year that Was

The timeless word game, ‘Scrabble’ was introduced this year, the sock hop classic, ‘Rock Around the Clock’ by Bill Haley & His Comets topped the charts in the US, and Hollywood heartthrob, James Dean, died in an automobile accident. Ray Kroc bought out a hamburger franchise from the McDonald brothers, and The Macallan Estate acquired the nucleus of a small herd of pure bred Aberdeen Angus cattle.
