The new Macallan distillery and visitor experience marries our whisky making heritage with the innovative vision that sits at the heart of The Macallan and guides our future.
Designed by internationally acclaimed architects, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the iconic evolution of the home of The Macallan embodies the care, passion and superior craftsmanship that goes into every bottle of our single malt. Sitting at the heart of The Macallan Estate, just 400m from our existing distillery, the new distillery and visitor experiences sits side by side our Spiritual Home, Easter Elchies House, and marries our past, our present and our future in a unique statement in architecture, construction and whisky making.

The Beauty Is In The Details
“The Macallan estate truly is a special place; a place we have come to love and respect hugely. The vision was always ambitious but this enabled us to challenge our own thinking to create something so dramatic and awe-inspiring." - Graham Stirk, Senior Partner and Lead Architect, Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners
After six years in the making, this is more than a distillery for The Macallan. A striking piece of contemporary architecture cut into the slope of the land, the building and all of its elements embody the unique beauty of the birthplace of brand and our whisky making roots - and mark a significant milestone and celebration of The Macallan story now and into the future. Taking its cues from ancient Scottish hills and maximising the aesthetic beauty of the building, the distillery and visitor experience was designed to minimise the visual impact on the Speyside landscape whilst having the maximum awe-inspiring impact for whisky lovers from all over the world who visit.
This strong commitment to staying true to the nature and traditions at the heart of the estate is inherent in the whisky making process itself, which remains unchanged. Honouring the practices, methods and exacting standards that create the distinctive flavour and character of our single malt today, The Macallan will continue to be produced in exactly the same way; drawing on the same water and raw materials, curiously small stills and processes that define our unique spirit. - Photo Credits: Mark Power, Magnum Photos
