Macallan "Woodland" Bottle

Postby lbacha » Sun Jul 23, 2006 2:13 am

I just wanted to let people know if they are visiting the Macallan distillery they can visit my oak tree. I just received my certificate from Macallan making it official. If anyone else out there has a tree I thought this would be a neat thread to talk about it on. I'm hoping to someday share this bottle with my grandchildren while visiting my tree.

Here is a map of the location (tree number 582) I know it's hard to see but it is in the large green section in the middle of the page. The path goes around it so I thought it would be a good location.

What's rarer than a single-cask bottling of your favorite malt? A tree in Scotland. Pretty cool!

I presume Macallan is going to cut it down some day and put whisky in it?

It is a nice idea, alright. How does it work? How much does it cost?

Actually they are trying to replant the property so they arn't planning on cutting them down but who knows what happens in the future. The bottle was 100 pounds and I beleive you can only get it at the distillery. I think they were willing to mail to people in the UK. When they have sold them all they are going to make a book at the distillery with everyones name and the location of their tree. I tried the whisky at he Highlander Inn and it is ok but not great so waiting to open it shouldn't be a problem.
