An intriguing single malt that celebrates the coming together of two styles, Double Cask Gold reflects a perfect harmony of flavours and natural colour. The perfect partnership of American and European Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks creates this burnished gold whisky with a distinctive character, that leads with American oak style before giving way to classic Macallan flavours.
Previously known as The Macallan Gold (part of The 1824 Series), The Macallan Double Cask Gold offers the same unique whisky with a new name, new bottle and bold new packaging. Reflecting the quality of our whiskies and unveiling the skills and craft of the Macallan Masters, this new identity for our core range will roll out from the end of April across the world.
Marks of Distinction
From The Cask
Every Macallan single malt reveals the unrivalled commitment to the mastery of wood and spirit for which The Macallan has been known since it was established in 1824. It is an expression of our enduring desire to go beyond ordinary, to seek out the extraordinary, and create peerless single malts.
With an unflinching commitment to put sherry casks at the heart of The Macallan single malt, our reputation for the extraordinary is testament to the exceptional oak casks in which we mature our spirit. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of The Macallan Master of Wood, these hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of The Macallan Master Distiller and his team.
Once filled, the maturing spirit remains undisturbed in the same casks for the necessary number of years it needs to be worthy of its destined Macallan expression. It is these oak casks that make the greatest contribution to the quality, natural color and distinctive aromas and flavors which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.

The ice ball melts slowly to chill your whisky whilst releasing less water, preserving the light notes of this single malt and its gold colour from start to finish.
A celebration of two
American ginger and Spanish sherry tell the story of the varieties of wood used to create Double Cask Gold in this simple serve. The ginger cuts through the apple and vanilla whilst the Oloroso nuttiness pairs perfectly with the spicy cinnamon.
