The below is taken from The Whisky Distilleries of the United Kingdom by Alfred Barnard first published in 1887. You can find the distillery profile at our Macallan overview
Macallan Distillery, Rothes, Elgin.
FROM Glen Spey we drove to the above Distillery, which belongs to the same proprietors. This old-fashioned establishment is situated in the hilly district above the Spey, and is one mile from Dandaleith Station. It was established in the year 1824, and its internal arrangements are similar to the other Speyside Distilleries. The Whisky is Highland Malt, and the product, like that of Glen Spey, mostly finds its way to the English market. The annual output is about 40,000 gallons.
