The Birthplace Of Every Bottle Of The Macallan

We look forward to welcoming you to The Macallan Estate in Speyside, Scotland, and sharing an insight into the process, production, people and passion that makes our single malt whisky so special.



We are pleased to announce that we will begin a phased re-opening of The Macallan Estate from 26 September 2020.

The past few months have 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.
