Macallan frigiver 65 YO

Macallan og Lalique er klar med den sjette og sidste aftapning i deres Six Pillars Collection.

Macallan 65 YO Lalique 1Siden 2005 har Macallan og Lalique frigivet fem luksuriøse aftapninger, som sætter fokus på de “Six Pillars”, der udgør essensen i Macallans whisky og nu er de altså klar med den sjette og sidste. De “Six Pillars” udgør følgende:

  • Spiritual Home (Easter Elchies House)
  • Curiously Small Stills
  • Finest Cut
  • Exceptional Oak Casks
  • Natural Colour
  • Peerless Spirit

Denne sjette aftapning hylder Peerless Spirit, hvilket blandt andet indebærer det arbejde som Bob Dalgarno og hans team udfører for at blende forskellige fade sammen til det færdige udtryk. Indholdet er 65 år gammelt og det er præsenteret i en lækker dråbeformet dekanter, som hylder hver eneste “Peerlees Drop” af Macallan whisky. Der er lavet 450 nummererede flasker.

Ken Grier, Brand Director hos Macallan udtaler:

This stunning collection of decanters is the result of two kindred spirits, rooted in a shared passion for craftsmanship, detail and mastery. This sixth and final release continues to showcase the unwavering commitment of both the masters of Lalique and The Macallan to create beautiful and desirable objet d’art. With the collection now complete, it is time to reflect not only on the exquisite whiskies that have been brought to the fore by The Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker, but also on the extraordinary skills of the Lalique craftsmen carrying on the legacy of René Lalique, the man whose talent continues to inspire and influence. It is the heritage, customs and traditions of both The Macallan and Lalique that have united to create this ultimate collectable collection.
