An enchanting tribute to our Speyside home.

The Macallan Easter Elchies Black

Reflecting the Welcoming Warmth found in Easter Elchies House

Inspired by the dusk of an autumn evening in the Scottish Highlands and the captivating firelight glowing through the windows of Easter Elchies House, Easter Elchies Black 2020 Release is a distinctively smoky and full-bodied expression influenced by The Macallan’s heritage and craft. Rich and dark with a sweet smokiness, the peerless single malt pays homage to Easter Elchies House and reflects The Macallan’s unrivalled commitment to the mastery of spirit and wood.

Situated on a hillside overlooking the River Spey, Easter Elchies House is an 18th century Highland Manor home which lies at the heart of The Macallan’s 485-acre estate and has been synonymous with the exclusive character of the Speyside single malt since its founding in 1824. Built in 1700 from locally quarried sandstone, the turreted house with its crow-stepped gables watches over the silent warehouses where the precious spirit slowly matures in exceptional oak casks.

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.
