The Macallan's unwavering commitment to exceptional wood defines every aspect of our whiskey creation - and in the Double Cask, two worlds unite to create a distinctive Macallan.
Created from the perfect balance of handpicked American and European Oloroso sherry oak casks, their Double Cask Series celebrates the blending of two styles to bring out a unique character while presenting familiar flavors.
To create the Double Cask, we bring new oak from America over thousands of kilometers to Spain, where casks are made and sherry aged before traveling to the distillery in Speyside to mature. These whiskeys are then harmoniously combined with those aged in the very best European sherry-aged oak casks.
This association tells the story of a journey that brings different worlds together, revealing an unparalleled investment in time and an extraordinary commitment to mastery that The Macallan has been known for since 1824. The handling of this association results in a perfect partnership of Oloroso sherry aged in American and European oak barrels, creating a series with an extraordinary fusion of vanilla and subtle spices.
