On Friday, June 21, we here at TastyChomps and Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster partnered up to host The Macallan Scotch Dinner.
Christner’s Prime Steak & Lobster has been owned and operated by the Christner family since 1993 and remains an award-winning favorite of the Orlando community featuring the finest USDA Prime steaks in town, as well as fresh seafood and outstanding wine and spirits.
Erin Yesser of Edrington gave us a rundown on The Macallan and its rich history.
Originally, The Macallan was matured only in oak sherry casks brought to the distillery from Jerez, Spain. The Macallan works closely with fully integrated ‘tree to finished seasoned cask’ companies in Spain; to identify the oak trees in the forests of northern Spain, fell the trees, saw and air dry the oak staves before shipping them to the south for further air-drying to reduce the moisture even more. The casks are then seasoned for 18 months before making the journey to Scotland where they are filled with The Macallan ‘new make’ spirit.
All of The Macallan whiskies take 100% of their color from the wood in which they are matured. As wood is a natural product, each tree is different and in turn, imparts different flavors and colors to the whisky during maturation.
