These copper stills are traditional and handmade, and are truly works of art, crafted by coppersmith company Forsyths, located just three miles from the distillery and our trusted stills partners since the 1950s. When we made the decision to build the new distillery, our shared values and principles made them an obvious choice.
Instead of changing the shape or size of our stills, we deliberately chose to fashion the exact same shape, size and lyne arm orientation of our original squat copper stills. This ensures that the character of our new-make spirit is preserved and consistent. There are 24 of these exceptionally crafted spirit stills within the new distillery; each one distinctive, each one Macallan.
