Willie Phillips, former Managing Director at Macallan

Former Macallan managing director Willie Phillips is credited as the man that made Macallan.

With a pioneering approach to bottling very old and vintage whisky, former Macallan managing director Willie Phillips is the man who made Macallan what it is today.  He positioned Macallan as ‘the Cognac of whisky’ and combined irreverent advertising with his dedication to rich new-make spirit matured in sherry casks, creating through the 1980s and 1990s the template for Macallan's rise to fame.

Join Willie Phillips and Macallan-collecting Whisky Exchange founder Sukhinder Singh for an exploration of old and rare Macallan from the 1950s, 1960s, 1970s and 1980s, complete with distillery tales from someone who saw it all.
