The Macallan Collectible Factors
Today The Macallan has gained iconic status, but this wouldn’t have been possible without the whiskies distilled during the period which we consider to be the golden age of single malt production: 1930s, 1940s, 1950s, 1960s.
The Macallan was among the first distilleries to put the vintage, indicating the distillation year, on the labels of its single malts, showcasing how the quality would remain the same with the ever changing batch variations in every single vintage, innovation that developed a following among its drinkers and collectors alike.
In more recent years the distillery has collaborated with the finest brands around the world to further delight collectors, an example being the ongoing partnership with Lalique crystal that gave birth to the outstanding Lalique series of extremely long-aged and rare Macallans, or with world famous photographers for its Masters of Photography collection.

Evolution of the "Vintage Series"
One of the most sought-after whisky series of all time. Every true Macallan collector is looking to complete an entire set of the ongoing vintage series from Macallan.
In the beginning, Macallan was releasing its sherry-matured whiskies with details of their specific vintage only on the neck label, These were bottled at 80 Proof (46%), and the box proclaimed them to be "Over 15 Years Old". These early releases are famous for their unparalleled quality.
They paved the way to success for Macallan and the series later evolved into what is today’s world famous Macallan 18YO Sherry Oak.
