How much is Macallan whisky worth?

There are six factors that affect the value of a bottle of Macallan.  They are: the age of whisky, the age of bottle, whether or not they are special editions, the vintage, the level and condition of the label.

Bottles of Macallan can easily be worth £1,000 to £5,000 if they fit several of the criteria.  For instance, bottles of the 25 Year Old Anniversary Malt vary in price depending on the distillation year, the level of the bottle and also the condition of the label.

Other bottles of Macallan may be worth more, despite not fulfilling all of the criteria, particularly special edition bottles like Private Eye.

If you would like a valuation of your bottle please get in touch.  All our contact details are provided at the bottom of this page.

We can also help you sell your bottle and have a wide network of private buyers looking to add to their collections.

The six factors that affect the value of Macallan bottles

Macallan Whisky Vintages

Age of Whisky

This relates to the time the whisky spent in the cask not how long it has been in the bottle.  This is indicated on the label and can vary from 5 to over 30 years old.

Macallan Whisky Worth

Bottling Date

This relates to when the whisky was bottled (1980’s, 1990’s etc). Holding onto a bottle for a long time does not necessarily mean its value will increase as the whisky does not improve once bottled, unlike wine. However, as bottles are consumed, the remaining bottles become rarer, so a ‘standard’ malt released in the 1980’s is now considered sought after.

Macallan Royal Marriage Worth

Limited Editions

There are two types of limited edition bottlings.  The first are single cask editions and are limited to the number of bottles of whisky contained in the cask.  The second type of limited edition are those that were made for a specific event, such as The Macallan Private Eye or The Macallan Royal Marriage.

What is Macallan Worth

Distillation Year

The distillation year refers to the specific year the whisky was distilled (made).  It is one of the most important factors that can impact the price of your bottle of The Macallan.  A vintage is expressed as a date on the bottle from the year the whisky was produced.  The vintage has no effect on the quality of the whisky (unlike wine vintages) but they are viewed in the same way as coin dates or stamp sheet numbers (where collectors try and collect one from each year).

Macallan Whisky Level

Level

The level of the whisky should be into the neck (the narrow part).  As alcohol is more volatile than water it is the alcohol that will evaporate first which damages the flavour.  If the level is lower than the neck it will have an impact on the price. It is advisable to use Parafilm to seal the capsule.

Label & Packaging

The label on a bottle of The Macallan is very important and if it is damaged in any way then this will have a negative impact on the value. Bottles also need to have their original cartons/boxes if they were issued with them in order to get the best price. A bottle without its original box could be worth up to 30% less.
