  1. The first time I bought a bottle of Mccallam there was a form in with the bolle which I filled out and sent to the brewery. In return I was sent a small water picher labeled Mccallam and a deed for 1 square foot of land at the brewery site. The nicest suprise,of course, was the wonderful flavor of this wonderful whiskey.
