    The six pillars are the foundation stones for the character and excellence of The Macallan

    The Spiritual Home, the distillery is watched over by Easter Elchies House, the first of the six pillars
    Within the distillery the then Curiously Small Copper Stills help to concentrate the flavour of the new make spirit
    The Macallan takes one of the Finest Cuts of any Scottish Distillery, the best of the best
    It is an unfaltering obsession with Exceptional Oak Casks which delivers the wonderful diversity evident throughout The Macallan range. Each cask affects the 'new make' spirit in slightly different ways to create variations in colour, aroma and flavour
    Significantly The Macallan insists on Natural Colour
    It is the interaction of spirit and wood alone which delivers the Peerless Spirit
