Two Worlds Uniting

In Collaboration with Steve McCurry

Steve McCurry has been one of the most iconic voices in contemporary photography for more than 30 years, with scores of magazine and book covers, over a dozen books, and countless exhibitions around the world to his name.

Journey with him as he traces our journey of The Macallan cask from its origins in the forests of America and Europe, through the cooperages and Bodegas of Spain, and to our distillery in Speyside, Scotland. There the casks meet our new make spirit and are patiently matured until they are harmoniously united to create a distinctive single malt with a sweeter, warmer taste and character.

The Story of Double Cask

The Best Of Two Worlds

The Macallan’s unwavering commitment to exceptional wood management defines every aspect of our whisky creation - and in Double Cask, two worlds unite to create a distinctive Macallan. Created from the perfect balance of hand-picked American and European Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks, our Double Cask range celebrates the coming together of two styles to brings a unique character to the fore, whilst presenting familiar flavors.

To create Double Cask, we bring new oak from America across thousands of miles to Spain, where casks are crafted and sherry seasoned before travelling to the distillery on Speyside to mature. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged in the very best European sherry seasoned oak casks.

Telling the story of a journey that brings together different worlds, this union reveals an unmatched investment in time and extraordinary commitment to mastery for which The Macallan has been known since 1824. Mastery of this union results in a perfect partnership of Oloroso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks that creates a range with an extraordinary fusion of vanilla and subtle spice.
