This Macallan 25 Year Old Anniversary Malt was distilled in 1963 and bottled in 1988 at 43% ABV.

Macallan are no stranger to producing highly collectible series and the Anniversary Malt series is no exception. Consisting of 16 vintage statement releases and two non-vintage bottlings, the 25 Year Old Anniversary Malts make the perfect vertical for any whisky collector. 

There is little knowledge as to why this 25 Year Old bottling run is called the Anniversary Malt series, although it is likely that the releases were aimed at anyone celebrating a 25 year old anniversary as a gift or commemorative keepsake. The original bottles were sold for £25 when they were released (another canny marketing ploy - £25 for a 25 year old whisky), making it considerably easier to give as a gift than it is today! 

The first 25 Year Old Anniversary Malt was released in 1983 and carried a vintage year of 1957. This original release and the following year’s bottle include “bottled by Macallan-Glenlivet” on the label which Macallan dropped after 1984.   

Whilst there were releases of the Macallan 25 Year Old Anniversary Malt most years from 1983 to 2000, there were a few years that were missed: 1960, 1961, and 1973. However, it is widely believed that some of the non vintage statement releases of the Anniversary Malt are likely from these missing years as they are bottled at 75cl, a volume that was not used after 1990. 

The last release of the Anniversary Malt to carry a vintage statement was the 1975 25 Year Old, bottled in 2000. Whilst there were additional releases until 2004, none of these bottles had their distillation year on the label, despite otherwise looking the same.

The Anniversary Malts are certainly good looking bottles for a collection. The series features the iconic Macallan cream and gold labels with the bold red 25 in the centre of the label. From 1983 until 2002, the Anniversary Malts were accompanied by a classic wooden presentation box, however this was changed in the final years of the series to a red box, the same as the Macallan 30 Year Old.

The Macallan 25 Year Old Anniversary Malt is a fantastic addition to any whisky collection, either as a commemorative item or the start of a highly valuable vertical.
