Macallan has unveiled its latest masterwork of alcoholic alchemy, with an exclusive bottling from 1950. Called Tales of The Macallan Volume 1. The first edition in a remarkable new collection of distinguished and rare single malt Scotch whiskies, which tells the story of The Macallan’s pioneers and their whisky-making legacy.
Pays tribute to Captain John Grant, who built the manor house on the 485-acre Easter Elchies Estate in 1700 which has been the distillery’s spiritual home since its foundation in 1824. Bottled in 2021 in 350 handcrafted Lalique crystal decanters retailing for £60,000 ($80,000) each. The alcohol content is 44.6% ABV. 350.
Sarah Burgess, Lead Whisky Maker at The Macallan, said: “Just like The Macallan Estate and Easter Elchies House, this precious whisky echoes of a very old tale. Wood spices, sweet wood smoke and antique oak are omnipresent and make a perfect liaison with the delicate symphony of ripe fruits and spices.“
The Macallan collaborated with well-known British artist illustrator Andrew Davidson, to create a collection of illustrations contained within an antique style leather-bound book decorated with 24ct gold that tell the story of John Grant and his close links with Easter Elchies. The same illustrations can be found etched into the lightly-frosted Lalique decanter.
Only 350 bottles will be released of Tales of The Macallan Volume 1. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
