Macallan Red Collection Macallan Red Collection

The Macallan
Red Collection

Red is a significant colour for The Macallan. From the surname of its founder, Alexander Reid – which means 'the red one' – to the colour used on the distillery's oldest vintages when they were released in in the 1980s, this powerful colour is entwined with its history.

To celebrate this, Macallan is launching an extraordinary series of whiskies: The Red Collection. Combining its oldest-ever ongoing bottlings – 40-, 50-, and 60-year-old single malts – with a limited-edition trio of the oldest whiskies ever bottled by the distillery – 71-, 74- and 78-year-old single malts – the collection is sure to make the heart of any Macallan fan sing. Each bottle in the collection comes in an oak presentation box lined with soft red Scottish leather, and a bespoke case is also available to house a trio of ongoing or limited-edition releases.

Every edition in the Macallan Red Collection is extremely limited in number. We will only be receiving a few bottles of each expression, so if you are interested in purchasing any of the bottles within the collection, please register your interest and we will be in touch.
