Since 1824, The Macallan name has been a guarantee of unrivalled craftsmanship and quality. And now there is a new whisky bearing this name; a single malt born from this unwavering endeavour. This is Macallan Rare Cask, the embodiment of our obsession.
Rare Cask is crafted by our Master Whisky Maker from a small proportion of maturing casks at The Macallan distillery. These casks are handmade from Spanish and American oak; and are the best in the business. Wood defines the flavour of The Macallan, with over 60% of the character comes from the cask it is aged in. But as the name suggests, there is more to this story. Rare Cask is truly rare. This rarity comes from the fact that some of the casks used in the creation of this whisky will never be used again.
The Macallan Rare Cask captures a true decadence; its creation goes beyond any other Macallan whisky and its rarity is absolute. It is a single malt of such diversity and intricacy it challenges the very conventions of whisky creation. It is almost a reinvention by design, but yet The Macallan at its core.
Bob Dalgarno, the Master Whisky Maker is responsible for creating Rare Cask, testing his knowledge and skill to create a whisky worthy of The Macallan name. “Rare Cask is about firstly identifying a selection of casks which can truly be called rare. Each of the cask styles result in different character, so each imparts their own distinct influence on the final whisky.”
With a rich mahogany red hue, The Macallan Rare Cask showcases two of The Macallan’s greatest strengths, exceptional oak casks and natural colour, which are combined with knowledge, skill, passion, commitment and creativity. A whisky produced through meticulous dedication to wood. Some would call this an obsession. We call it The Macallan.
The Macallan Rare Cask is available from specialist whisky retailers including The Whisky Shop and has a RRP of £200.

At the recent Drammie Awards for 2014, Stirling whisky bar The Curly Coo came out on top being voted best whisky bar in the world for the second year running. Speaking afterwards, owner Mandy commented “Feeling very honoured to be voted ‘Best Whisk(e)y Bar in the World’, 2 years running in 2 different bars!! Last year when I won, I was very grateful to Crieff people who voted for me but was a sweet/sad experience. Won the Drammie awards on Wednesday then found out the Coo building was being put up for sale on the Friday… The award means so much to me this year. I opened Curly Coo Bar in Stirling at beginning of December and have had so much support from the Stirling folk and many of Stirling Students, Lecturers and Professors… Exciting times ahead, thanks to all who have supported me along the way… Mandy.
A big congratulations to Mandy and the Curly Coo. Be sure to drop in for a dram when next in Stirling.
