Introducing The Macallan @ Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley, a bespoke sensorial whisky experience at the ultra-luxury Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley in Australia’s Greater Blue Mountains from May 2023 until May 2026.

The Macallan see this partnership as an opportunity to engage with their Australian audience on a deeper level by offering a uniquely immersive experience for resort guests, who pay homage to the nature and culture of both brand's heritage and sustainability philosophies.
Guests of the resort will experience The Macallan story through a sensorial journey, exploring the extraordinary legacy and expertise of the world’s most incomparable Single Malt Scotch whisky.

Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley’s resident chef, Pitam Gurung, will carefully curate a series of seasonal menus throughout the year to pair perfectly with the selection of fine whiskies. This one-of-a- kind menu series will feature seasonal produce grown in the Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley chef’s garden, foraged from the reserve and sourced from the best of the region’s speciality farmers and producers.
“The Macallan is honoured to partner with the ultra-luxury Emirates One&Only Wolgan Valley resort to bring a first-to-market exclusive private space curated with The Macallan bespoke journey set in the breathtaking Blue Mountains of Australia.
