Tales of The Macallan Volume I pays tribute to Captain John Grant, Laird of Easter Elchies. The story of Captain John Grant, The Macallan’s first true custodian, tells the tale of a realisation of a dream, the transformation of a landscape and a new beginning. Living and working on Easter Elchies Estate, he paved the way for The Macallan and cultivated the influence of nature and community spirit.
This is the first edition in a remarkable series of single malt whiskies that pay tribute to The Macallan Pioneers and their stories.
Encased in a Lalique crystal decanter, the rare whisky distilled in 1950 and bottled in 2021 is concealed within an extraordinary 800-page almanac. The book tells the story of Captain John Grant and features beautiful illustrations by renowned illustrator and artist, Andrew Davidson.
