Captured: The Distillery
Both myself and the six Magnum Photographers have loved visiting The Macallan and witnessing this amazing building grow out of the ground. We first visited the site when it was just a hole in ground so we all feel very connected to this wonderful piece of architecture... This beautiful part of Scotland will forever be a big part of Magnum Photos history. Tim Paton, Magnum Photos
Behind the Scenes
Sarah Burgess, Whisky Maker
Deep amber with rose gold hues.
Light hints of peat layered into warm spiced ginger with mellow oak notes. Gently coming behind these notes, are an almost tangerine citrus and caramelised apple.
Candied dried fruits and a butterscotch sweetness with a tickling of spice that moves into a honeyed nut note.
Medium to long finish ending in sweet earthy peat notes.
