Available - From this month

Location - Initially in the US, then selected global markets

Price - Between US$250 and $1,300

Edrington is to launch a seven-strong Macallan range that aims to highlight the Scotch brand's diversity of styles. The Macallan Exceptional Single Cask Range rolls out from this month and features whiskies from Sherry-seasoned casks filled between 1995 and 2004.

Edrington said each cask displays a unique character that shows different Macallan aromas, flavours and natural colours.

The range will initially be released in the US, with selected global markets to follow.

Edrington's super-premium Macallan range will not be affected by moves in Scotland for Minimum Unit Pricing, however its high-volume Famous Grouse brand could be. Today, the Scottish Supreme Court denied a final appeal by the alcohol industry to strike down MUP. The Scottish Government now has the green light to implement measures that will mean a GBP15 (US$20) baseline price for bottles of Scotch in retail.
