Nurtured by Nature with Every Step

We believe that nature can provide inspiration in every context. During each step in the process of creating The Macallan we choose to respect and honour the natural processes, and the time it takes to achieve excellence in our single malts.

 

Nature on The Macallan Estate

On The Macallan Estate we seek to be mindful custodians of this beautiful land, drawing creative inspiration from its rhythms, scents and produce. 

 

Nature inspires us at every step. With sustainability at the centre of our intentions and approach, we have created whisky rituals drawing from nature to inspire you to see both our single malts and the natural world around you through a new lens. 

From seed to glass, we are committed to sourcing our ingredients and materials locally and sustainably.

Rituals

Our serve rituals are not designed to be prescriptive. They are practices to draw you into the present, to help elevate and appreciate an experience. 

Our whiskies can be enjoyed neat, with ice or in a serve; each will enhance the flavours in a different way. Using responsibly sourced ingredients, you can create your own ritual around your favourite single malt, or perhaps try a new one to discover a whole new way to enjoy. 

To create this serve at home, all that you require is a sense of adventure and curiosity. Sparkling water infused with flora and paired with The Macallan Rare Cask or The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old can help to bring out new flavour notes that previously may have gone unnoticed, and spark fond memories forgotten. 

 

 
The Macallan Rare Cask with Serve

An Infused Ritual 

Designed to be sipped alongside your single malt, explore new scents and flavours through an infused water serve experience.

Ingredients:

  • The Macallan Rare Cask or The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old 
  • Sparkling water
  • Selection of infusion ingredients: 
  • Visit a local florist, restaurant supplier or farmers market and find some seasonal flavours and scents that resonate with you
  • This is not designed to be prescriptive but inspirational. Think of flavours and scents that you naturally gravitate towards and experiment with new pairings

Steps

  1. Using an infusion bottle, fill one side with a selection of responsibly sourced ingredients torn from collected flora. 
  2. Add sparkling water into the other side and rotate to infuse the ingredients. Do not over shake.
  3. Pour the infused water into a glass, and set aside.
  4. Pour the neat serve into a separate glass.
  5. In a space where you feel calm and relaxed, inhale the scent from your serve, and then take a sip of each, allowing the taste of both liquids to enhance the others.
