To celebrate the launch of its newest expression to its single malt lineup, the Macallan Rare Cask, whisky house The Macallan will be presenting an interactive exhibition for the first time in Southeast Asia that chronicles the making of the whisky.
Held over three weekends from 18 July to 02 August at The White House, the interactive exhibition will allow visitors to immerse themselves in a one-of-a-kind experience to celebrate The Macallan’s unrivalled commitment to sourcing the finest and most expensive sherry seasoned oak casks, from the planting of every acorn to the handcrafting of the oak cask.
The new Macallan Rare Cask is positioned as a modern, rare and luxurious whisky that’s been aged in both Spanish and American oak sherry seasoned casks, giving it a rich ruby-red hue that’s a hallmark of The Macallan’s greatest prides: exceptional sherry-seasoned oak casks and beautiful natural colour.
“Wood sits at the very heart of what we do at The Macallan, and Rare Cask further demonstrates the vital role of our casks in the production of our superb whiskies,” shares Stuart MacPherson, The Macallan’s Master of Wood. “Our commitment to sherry seasoned oak casks is unquestionable and Rare Cask showcases The Macallan at its very best.”
The Macallan’s commitment to its wood program – possibly the industry’s largest – is shown in the dedicated team of 25 people that looks after and nurtures each cask at the distillery.
The exquisite liquid is then hand-chosen from 16 different styles of sherry-seasoned oak casks hand-crafted at the most trusted selection of cooperages in Spain and a handful of partner bodegas. The eventual Rare Cask is the finest cut – with less than 1% of those casks maturing at the distillery deemed fitting for the Rare Cask label by Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno.
Whisky fans who sign up for The Macallan Rare Cask experience are also likely be delighted with the opportunity to try the sherry that fills the oak casks, as well as getting a taste of the new Macallan Rare Cask.
