Steve McCurry has been a Magnum photographer since 1986, capturing powerful images from across the globe as a freelance photographer. However, his latest project has taken him from the beautiful woods of Northern Spain to the lush forests of Pennsylvania to capture the journey of The Macallan's hand-crafted, sherry-seasoned oak casks. 

Steve McCurry's collection of images showcase the people, places and processes involved in the production of The Macallan's oak casks. To capture this project, McCurry travelled to Northern Spain, which is the source of European oak for The Macallan casks. After that, he journeyed to Jerez, Southern Spain, which is where the casks are hand-crafted and seasoned with sherry.
