The Macallan Archival Series Folio 3 


1. What is The Archival Series – Folio 3?
Folio commemorates the legendary Macallan advertising campaigns of the 1970s, ‘80s and ‘90s that took the brand to a wider audience. The series draws together a curious memorandum of stories, anecdotes, drawings and photographs through which we examine how a remote farmstead on the River Spey came to produce what is widely recognized around the world as the supreme example of the craft. Folio 3 is the third in a limited series in The Archival Series.

Finish: Medium finish – a balance of sweet oak and vanilla.
