The Macallan story begins on our 485-acre Estate, an area of exceptional natural beauty that supports a rich and varied ecosystem. Our commitment to doing the right thing actively informs every decision we make, not only in relation to what's right for the legacy of our precious single malt whisky, but also for our Estate and the many species of wildlife and plants that also call it home.
The Macallan Estate has been our home for almost 200 years. We have strong roots here, nurtured by a natural harmony with the rolling landscape surrounding us, and the abundance of life it supports. The Distillery blends effortlessly into the ancient hills of Speyside with one of Europe’s largest green roofscapes at just over 12,000sqm. Planted with a mix of native species and herbs, it provides sustainable food and nesting resources for birds and insects.
