Meaning and history

Macallan logo

The Macallan logo is a black and gold wordmark on a white background with an emblem of Easter Elchies House, part of The Macallan estate, executed in elegant gold.

The name Macallan is likely a combination of two Gaelic words: “Magh”, which means fertile ground, and “Ellan”, a reference to Irish monk, who brought Christianity to Scotland.

The Macallan brand philosophy is what they call The Six Pillars, it’s shown on every label and includes:

Spiritual Home; Easter Elchies House, built in 1700, lies at the heart of The Macallan estate

Curiously Small Stills; contribute to the distinctively rich, fruity spirit of The Macallan.

Finest Cut – the scissor emblem.

Exceptional Oak Casks – the barrel; The Macallan spends more on sourcing, building, seasoning and caring for its casks than any other single malt whisky.

The peacock emblem means Natural Color; the rich range of colours in The Macallan whiskies is drawn only from the wood of our exceptional oak casks.

The Macallan itself – the drop; the peerless spirit – one of the world’s greatest whiskies.
