Edrington has released a new expression for its The Macallan brand that has been aged in Spanish oak Sherry-seasoned casks.

The Macallan Rare Cask, which has no age statement, comes in an especially-designed bottle intended to highlight the red colour of the liquid and goes on sale in the US from today. “This new release celebrates the very foundations that make The Macallan so special - our glorious range of natural colour and the outstanding quality of our casks,” said Ken Grier, Edrington's director of malts.

Edrington is expected to begin construction on its new Macallan distillery this month after gaining permission from Moray Council in August.
