UK exclusive for the Macallan

26 June, 2012

Malt whisky the Macallan has launched a new range exclusive to the UK – the 1824 Series.

The whiskies will be the classic signature Macallan, matured in oak sherry casks and giving full-bodied aromas and flavours, according to distributor Maxxium.

Ken Grier, director of malts at brand owner Edrington, said: “The 1824 Series will introduce a new approach to the Macallan in the UK market for single malt drinkers to enjoy and underlines our ongoing commitment to leading innovation. The move represents a major step in the evolution of the Macallan and we are extremely excited to be introducing this into the UK market first.”

The 1824 Series was created by Macallan whisky maker Bob Dalgarno and his team, and the first expression will be available from September, with more to follow next year.
