The king of all spirits; a great whisky commands respect – the finest 62-year-old single malt commands the reverence of a venerated elder.
The latest limited edition from The Macallan offers up a rare single malt of two and 60 years – the second oldest scotch ever released by the Scottish distillery.
Boasting a bold cherry colour, this £16,000 edition promises you a rich and aromatic cut, with burnished notes of orange, raisin and apple as well as a lasting woody oak flavour.
A showcase of Macallan’s luxury heritage, this crystal-encased tipple marks the penultimate decanter in the brands collaboration with French crystal house Lalique.
The six part series, one to mark each of the pillars of The Macallan (home, stills, casks, cut, colour and spirit) pays tribute to the brand’s rich history and craftsmanship.
The latest decanter – The Spiritual Home – takes inspiration from Easter Elchies House, the Jacobean manor house at the heart of the Macallan distillery in Speyside.
The decanter incorporates the initials of Captain John Elizabeth Grant, who oversaw the build of the house in 1700, and uses a unique digital stamp on the frosted crystal façade.
In short, this is going to look super smart in the liquor cabinet.
Made in a limited edition of 400, the collaborative objets d’art have quickly become collector’s items for crystal collectors and whisky connoisseurs alike, and for those who like to be lord of their own manor.
