The Macallan Double Cask Gold

The Macallan Double Cask Gold

Vanilla. Apple. Cinnamon.

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.

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.

Our reputation for the extraordinary is characterised by the exceptional oak casks for which The Macallan is renowned. Sourced, crafted, toasted and seasoned under the watchful eye of the Master of Wood, the hand-picked casks are delivered to the demanding specifications of the Whisky Mastery Team. It is the oak that makes the greatest contribution to the quality, natural colour and distinctive aromas and flavours at the heart of this single malt whisky.

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 colour and distinctive aromas and flavours which lie at the heart of The Macallan single malt.


Ways To Enjoy


Double Cask Gold Ice Ball

Chilled slowly for a perfect drinking experience


Double Cask Gold Ice Ball

Inspired by Japanese cocktail culture, where bartenders hand-carve ice balls to create sculpted spheres that melt slowly, The Macallan Ice Ball brings together magic, theatre and artistry to deliver a perfect serve.

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.


Golden Highball

A celebration of two


Golden Highball

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.
