It may be hard to imagine today, but for much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectible on the market. While global single malt sales volume is still lead by Speyside neighbours, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, Macallan is easily the most sought after. So much so in fact, that they had to open a brand new distillery in 2018, a subterranean architectural masterpiece within the Easter Elchies estate, boasting 36 copper pot stills.
One of the most desirable and collectable bottles of Macallan, this was released in 1996 to mark the 35th Anniversary of Private Eye magazine. Fine Macallan 12 year Online , Pure Macallan Whiskey Online. Tax free Whiskeys Online

About Macallan Private Eye
The Macallan ‘Private Eye’ is one of the most collectable bottles of whisky available at auction today. Bottled in 1996 to celebrate the 35th anniversary of the satirical current affairs magazine Private Eye and cleverly marketed, Macallan ‘Private Eye’ has greatly increased in value since it was released, and now commands prices at auction in excess of £3,500 (plus buyer’s premium).
Produced as a limited-edition release of 5000 bottles, The Macallan ‘Private Eye’ was bottled using Macallan Single Malt Whisky distilled in the year of the magazine’s founding – 1961. Each bottle is numbered in gold below the label, and whilst the number of the bottle is of little significance to buyers, a small premium may be paid for bottles with interesting numbers such as 111, 3333 or indeed 1961.
