Journey of Flavour

The Macallan Double Cask

Crafted without compromise, with a rich depth of flavour.

The Range

This range celebrates the marriage of two cask styles to create a unique character, underpinned by familiar flavours of The Macallan single malt whisky.

Double Cask by Erik Madigan Heck

To bring the multi-faceted flavours of the Double Cask range to life, we have collaborated with acclaimed artist Erik Madigan Heck.

Erik created a series of still life and abstract landscape shots to express the flavours notes of each whisky within the Double Cask range. Each image is a visual interpretation in his signature style that uses his eye for colour, texture and light to capture the flavour notes of the single malts.

In Collaboration with

Erik Madigan Heck

Describing himself as a painter who uses photography, Erik’s work is a contemporary extension of Romanticism, showcasing and celebrating both nature and beauty, much like The Macallan. Working with natural light and combining in-camera effects with digital post-production, Erik produces evocative and alluring images that are simultaneously timeless and futuristic.

His work is elegant and unashamedly beautiful, exploring the intersections of fashion, painting and classic portraiture.

A Sensorial Experience

The Story of Double Cask

Worthy of their name, our Exceptional Oak Casks are the single greatest contributor to the outstanding quality and distinctive aromas, flavours and natural colours of The Macallan. The Macallan Double Cask Range has a prominent, unmistakable sweetness which is attributed to the higher proportion of American sherry seasoned oak casks used for maturation.

Mastery of this union and the insistence of only using the finest ingredients results in a perfect partnership of both American and European oak sherry seasoned casks, that combined, create a range with extraordinary tasting notes of toffee and vanilla.

The Macallan owes its exceptional quality to our people, and it is their mastery of wood and spirit that define our whisky. Their skill, craftsmanship and creativity, passed down through many generations, create the consistent quality of every bottle.

Each sip of The Macallan is a truly sensorial experience. It is underpinned by the foundational rich, fruity, full bodied flavour which is attributed to the finest cut of the new make spirit produced from our Curiously Small Copper Stills, combined with our mastery of wood.
