Volume I, The Laird of Easter Elchies


Tales of The Macallan Volume I pays tribute to Captain John Grant, Laird of Easter Elchies. The story of Captain John Grant, The Macallan’s first true custodian, tells the tale of a realisation of a dream, the transformation of a landscape and a new beginning. Living and working on Easter Elchies Estate, he paved the way for The Macallan and cultivated the influence of nature and community spirit. 

This is the first edition in a remarkable series of single malt whiskies that pay tribute to The Macallan Pioneers and their stories. 

Encased in a Lalique crystal decanter, the rare whisky distilled in 1950 and bottled in 2021 is concealed within an extraordinary 800-page almanac. The book tells the story of Captain John Grant and features beautiful illustrations by renowned illustrator and artist, Andrew Davidson.


This distinctive and rare single malt was carefully crafted by The Macallan Lead Whisky Maker, Sarah Burgess. Distilled in 1950 and bottled in 2021, it was selected for its exceptional flavour and character. A sublime whisky, it is a celebration of the life and legacy of Captain John Grant.

Wood spices, sweet wood smoke and antique oak are omnipresent and beautifully complement the delicate symphony of ripe fruits and spices.
