THE MACALLAN ESTATE OPENING ANNOUNCEMENT FROM STUART CASSELLS, GENERAL MANAGER, THE MACALLAN ESTATE
We are pleased to announce that we will begin a phased re-opening of The Macallan Estate from 29 May 2021.
The past year has been exceptionally difficult for our community and communities around the world. The impact has been significant, but we are delighted to be able to re-open our doors to guests.
To protect our staff and guests, we will be operating a reduced level of experiences and have undertaken significant staff training to create a safe and welcoming environment, with social distancing and enhanced cleaning schedules at the centre of our re-opening plans.
Our Distillery is at the heart of The Macallan Estate and we look forward to welcoming our guests to the birthplace of The Macallan.
The Macallan Discovery Experience
This experience takes guests through our proud heritage, while exploring the journey from acorn to glass and sampling some of our distinguished single malt whiskies. You will be welcomed with The Macallan roast coffee and home baked scones, before exploring The Macallan Whisky Wall.
You will then be led by one of our friendly and knowledgeable hosts through the Distillery experience, including a guided tour of our iconic Cave Priveé for a tutored tasting of some carefully selected Macallan whiskies, before visiting The Macallan Bar for a final whisky experience.
Price: £50.00 per person
This experience delves deeper into the whisky making process and starts with a welcome dram at The Macallan Whisky Wall before enjoying a two-course lunch in our Elchies Brasserie, paired with wines. You will be led on an in-depth production experience through the distillery, before being guided through a tutored tasting of a carefully curated selection of Macallan whiskies in our iconic Cave Priveé.
You will then be invited to The Macallan Bar to experience a Macallan whisky flight. After your experience, our hosts will be available to offer a personal shopping experience in The Macallan Boutique. Guests will each receive a glass to commemorate their visit.
Price: £250.00 per person
Our gastronomic experience of London will be featured in the Elchies Brasserie, paired with The Macallan Distil Your World London Single Cask.

We look forward to welcoming guests to The Macallan Bar, where you can sample some of our finest whiskies, with panoramic views of the surrounding hills of Speyside.
