The marriage of classic Macallan style and the unmistakable sweetness of American oak, matured in the perfect balance of hand-picked sherry seasoned American and European oak casks.
The Story of Double Cask
THE BEST OF TWO WORLDS
The Macallan’s unwavering commitment to exceptional wood management defines every aspect of our whisky creation - and in Double Cask, two worlds unite to create a distinctive Macallan. Created from the perfect balance of hand-picked American and European Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks, our Double Cask range celebrates the coming together of two styles to brings a unique character to the fore, whilst presenting familiar flavours.
To create Double Cask, we bring new oak from America across thousands of miles to Spain, where casks are crafted and sherry seasoned before travelling to the distillery on Speyside to mature. These whiskies are then harmoniously united with those aged in the very best European sherry seasoned oak casks.
Telling the story of a journey that brings together different worlds, this union reveals an unmatched investment in time and extraordinary commitment to mastery for which The Macallan has been known since 1824. Mastery of this union results in a perfect partnership of Oloroso sherry seasoned American and European oak casks that creates a range with an extraordinary fusion of vanilla and subtle spice.
