The Macallan Woodland has now sold out.

January 17, 2007

In case you missed it The Macallan distillery on Speyside offered individuals the chance to buy their own little piece of Scotland – an oak tree on the historic Macallan estate.

One thousand new oak saplings were planted in the grounds of Easter Elchies House as part of a major woodland regeneration programme involving over 4,000 indigenous trees.

This very special package included an oak sapling and a limited edition bottle of The Macallan, hand-labelled and numbered at the distillery. “The Macallan Woodland Estate” is a 12-year-old Sherry Oak expression, released in recognition of the very special role that oak plays in the maturation of this legendary malt.

The purchasers own a specific tree identified by a plaque, which will bear their name and the number of their bottle, with a certificate of ownership outlining where their tree is situated. Proceeds will be invested in ongoing woodland regeneration.

Purchasers will be able to visit their own tree and can enter their names into a register to be held at the distillery.
