Toast The Macallan In Singapore!

By  |  0 Comments

Macallan recently hosted whisky fans at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.

Attendees – including those new and familiar with Macallan – were treated to an exhibition showcasing insights into the distillation process, some works from the Masters of Photography series as well as a tasting session covering four whiskies.

Brand ambassador Kieron Elliott – of How to train your Dragon movie fame – walked the audience through the importance of wood in the distillation process and how countries such as Scotland, Spain, New York and Singapore have influenced The Macallan over the years. Attendees learnt that colour has no bearing on taste and that Macallan does not believe in artificially enhancing the colour of their whiskies. Macallan claims to be the only distillery that owns the cask making process end to end, including growing their own trees!

Kieron led the tasting of the Macallan Sherry Oak 12 Year Old and 18 Year old as well as the Macallan Fine Oak 15 Year Old and a travel retail exclusive Macallan 1824 Collection Whisky Maker’s Edition.
