The Macallan distillery is a very big and industrialised distillery. It was founded in the year 1824 during the big Scottish distillation changes.
The Macallan is located next to the river Spey. It was one of the first distilleries to be registered in 1824 and is now one of the biggest whisky distilleries in Scotland.
In 1882 the distillery was sold to Roderick Kemp. His family brought the company to great success during the following 100 years of service.
Macallan has long been used in the blended whisky industry. Due to its delicious character and flavours it often served as the chest-piece in many blended malts.
During the 1960s the Macallan brand got its international breakthrough. And during the 80s the brand became well known all over the world.
