Macallan 1950. Tales of The Macallan Volume 1

Macallan 1950. An exceptionally rare single malt from the Macallan warehouses, the first entry in the Tales of the Macallan series was distilled in 1950 and bottled after more than 70 years in oak. Each Lalique crystal decanter is presented in a leather-bound book created by Shepherds – one of Britain’s oldest bookbinders. The beautifully illustrated volume tells the story of Captain John Grant, who built the iconic Easter Elchies House in 1700 and sowed the first barley on the future site of Macallan distillery.

This incredibly rare 1950 vintage Macallan was released in July 2019 only available from select luxury and specialist retailers in the UK.

Distilled on the 9th November 1950 and bottled over 67 years later on 19th October 2018 after maturing in a single American Oak first-fill Sherry butt #1683 (Ref: 2018/ASB-1683/13).

The Macallan Exceptional Casks series was relaunched in 2017. The range takes its name from a number of single cask bottlings Macallan released during the 1990s, which are often described as some of “the greatest Macallan of them all.
