It may be hard to imagine today, but for much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high-quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King, and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectibles on the market. While global single malt sales volume is still led by Speyside neighbors, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, Macallan 12 Year Old Sherry is easily the most sought after. So much so in fact, that they had to open a brand new distillery in 2018, a subterranean architectural masterpiece within the Easter Elchies estate, boasting 36 copper pot stills.

When Macallan assumed the responsibility for their own bottlings from Campbell, Hope & King in 1980, they inherited both an 8 and 12-year-old age-statement release, quickly adding a new 10-year-old into the mix as well. The 12-year old however was the firm favorite and is the only of the three still in production today.
