09 March 2020

An exclusive own bottling of The Macallan is the latest release to be announced by Scotch whisky merchant Goldfinch. Only 100 hand-numbered bottles of The Macallan 26 Years Old are available worldwide.

The single malt was distilled at The Macallan Distillery in June 1992 and matured for 25 years in an American oak Bourbon barrels, then finished by the Goldfinch team for one year in an Oloroso sherry oak hogshead . The non-chill filtered spirit was bottled at a cask strength of 40.8% ABV and comes presented in a decanter-style bottle with a bespoke navy blue, gold foil-embossed box.

Andrew Macdonald-Bennett from Goldfinch said:

"We are delighted to launch this exquisite single malt from The Macallan Distillery. It is a rare gem that offers whisky lovers and collectors, as well those interested in taking their first foray into whisky investment, the chance to own a very exclusive bottling of The Macallan single malt whisky. As well as displaying all the characteristics of a Macallan of its era, the double oak sherry finish has imparted layers of complexity to create an extraordinary single malt with notes of spiced oak, golden syrup, chocolate and oranges."

The Macallan 26 Years Old is available from Goldfinch Whisky Merchants, priced at £1,200 for a 70cl bottle (including UK duty and VAT). It is also available from Nickolls & Perks and Master of Malt.
