The Macallan emerged in 1824 when Alexander Reid, a local farmer, got one of the first licenses to distill whiskey and leased 8 acres (just over 3 has) from the Earl of Seafield in order to establish the The Macallan Distillery.
Reid was well known for their advanced farming methods and the superior quality of his whiskey.
In 1999, the Edrington Group Company, which for years had maintained close ties with The Macallan, acquired the majority of actions in partnership with Suntory, a minority shareholder, becoming the owners of the distillery.
