The Macallan 1928 whisky is a collectible type of Scotch whisky, produced by The Macallan Distillery in Scotland.

 

The Macallan Distillery

The Macallan Distillery was established at Craigellachie, Moray, Scotland in 1824.

It is famed the world-over for its single malts. Prior to 2004, the distillery used only oak sherry casks from Jerez, Spain.

Since that time, the distillery has employed both bourbon and sherry casks, using this new process to produce its Fine Oak offerings.

Scottish newspaper The Herald stated in 2009 that the distillery was "the world’s third largest-selling single malt (behind Glenfiddich and Glenlivet) with over 500,000 cases a year, and second largest by value."

Since 1999 the distillery has been owned by the Edrington Group.
