Whisky aficionados rejoice: The Macallan is celebrating its exceptional single malt whiskies with a sensorial experience, The Macallan Experience, from 26 October 2020.

The aim? To share the enriching stories of one of the world’s most exceptional single malt Scotch whiskies. Set amidst the unrivalled elegance of the Raffles Hotel Singapore, the fully immersive and integrated space will feature a multitude of experiences that will bring whisky aficionados and novices alike together for an exploration into the world of The Macallan.

The Macallan Experience is far more than a brand exhibition or tasting experience; it has been curated entirely to bring our stories and heritage to life through a narrative that takes drinkers into the depths of The Macallan, revealing what makes it the exceptional single malt it is today. This unique immersive experience also allows us to share stories from around the world which demonstrate the power of bravery and courage in shaping lives, experiences and progression.
