The Auld Alliance Vintage collection

A collection of rare casks selected for their exceptional character and finished for some in old wine casks from the Auld Alliance country and beyond. At the time, not only did Scotland export it’s whisky to France but it also imported wine casks for drinking, which were then used for storing the whisky.

A little bit of history: The Auld Alliance from the old Scots spelling Ald Allyance or in Scottish Gaelic, An Seann-Chaidreachas), was an alliance sealed between the Kingdoms of France and Scotland. Even if the treaty of Edinburgh from 1560 was meant to cancel most of its features, the spirit of the treaty continued as Mary Queen of Scots refused to ratify the treaty and after that non written support remained in place. The historic ties that link Scotland to France, and the rest of Europe, have been in place since 1295 and will continue to mark the culture and future of this nation.

The House of McCallum Vintage collection represents casks from different regions, different styles, some unique casks and other from distilleries distilled the same day and from the same pot still. Each bottle from each cask is unique. Some are finished is selected craft wine casks from small wine producers and are handpicked by myself.
