Today, the Macallan Estate encompasses 370 acres, 95 of which are devoted to the production of the Macallan Estate's Minstrel barley (a single acre produces about 2.5 tons of barley each year, enough to yield 1,800 bottles of The Macallan). In addition, the distillery contracts with farmers to purchase barley that is low in nitrogen and high in starch, resulting in a rich and oily whisky.

After the barley is harvested in late August and early September, it is malted before being mashed in one of The Macallan's two mash tuns, a process that takes between four and eight hours. Then, the barley is fermented with a specially cultured yeast before being distilled twice through The Macallan's copper-pot stills. The copper comprising the stills acts as a catalyst, and enhances the formation of sweet esters while minimizing impurities such as sulphur. In addition, the curiously small stills — some of "the smallest stills within the Scotch whisky industry,"according to production manager Alexander Tweedie — produce a whisky with a heavy, oily flavor.

Following distillation, The Macallan distillers remove the heads and tails of the whisky and collect approximately 16% of the spirit to fill into casks for maturation. This "cut,"which is among the highest of any Scottish distillery, results in a more full-bodied and and rich whisky.

Macallan 25 Year Old Sherry Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky is aged for a quarter century in sherry-seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain. The Macallan takes great care to source, craft, season and care for these casks, as they account for approximately 60% of the final aromas and flavors of the whisky, according to a study commissioned by the distillery.

As a result of its extended aging in sherry casks, The Macallan 25 Year Old Sherry Oak Single Malt Scotch Whisky has a rich mahogany color and aromas of citrus, pumpernickel, sherry and burnt wood. The palate is filled with notes of raisins, dried cherries, chocolate and campfire smoke, which leads to a finish accented by cloves, fruitcake, gingerbread and lemon tart.
