The MacAllan distillery
À proximité de Craigellachie, le village qui héberge la distillerie homonyme, sur une colline surplombant la Spey, s’étend le parc de la distillerie MacAllan. Au milieu de ce jardin, on trouve les bureaux et le centre d’accueil des visiteurs dans la Manor House d’Easter Elchie. Les bâtiments de la distillerie se dressent non loin de là.
Pour les collectionneurs, le nom de Macallan est le plus magique. Il vient de l’église Macallan, en ruine, du domaine Easter Elchies, qui domine le pont de Telford, sur la Spey, à Craigellachie.
Le whisky possède un corps extraordinaire et une complexité hors pair, avec un bel arôme rond. Il révèle des notes florales caractéristiques du malt local. 
Macallan est une des distilleries les plus importantes du Speyside, tant en production qu’en renommée de ses whiskies.

Speyside
The Speyside is a region that forms a core within the Highlands and that stretches along the Spey River. It goes even further, far beyond the lands of the Spey. Thus, the distilleries placed along Livet, Fiddich, Avon, Lossie, Findhorn and Deveron are also considered as a part of the Speyside. As it is not a geological unit, the boundaries of that region have never been set and sometimes, one could argue about the region from which a distillery comes from. According to the way we establish the boundaries, 63 of the 90 distilleries still in operation in Scotland are in the Speyside.
