The Macallan in partnership with Sotheby’s unveiled Distil Your World New York Single Cask Edition for auction, a limited edition bottle from The Macallan’s recent release of Distil Your World New York, a whisky that captures the essence of one of the most iconic cities in the world.
The limited-edition bottle costs an estimated $30,000 – $80,000 and comes in a striking blue presentation box featuring an engraved aerial map of the city, accompanied by a booklet about the bottle and Distil Your World New York series that is signed by the cast featured in the Distil Your World New York documentary that aired with the release of the original bottle. A dining experience at El Celler de Can Roca for the collector and three guests.
Bidding for the sale began on January 30th, and ends on February 10th. The auction offers collectors the only chance to obtain one of two bottles created of this limited edition whisky, as the second bottle will be kept in The Macallan archive.
Distil Your World New York Single Cask Edition is a single cask whisky from a European Oak Sherry Puncheon from 2002. This limited edition bottle delivers a quintessential New York flavor note of chocolate covered peanuts, along with a new taste of sweet candy and a hint of cherry blossom. A rare chocolate flavor which has been uncovered from a single cask, each sip takes taste buds and imagination on a journey of discovery, bringing the unique character of the city to life. The auction offers collectors the only chance to obtain one of two bottles created of this limited edition whisky, as the second bottle will be kept in The Macallan archive.
All proceeds from the sale of this lot will benefit ChaShaMa, a non-profit arts organization based in New York City that nurtures artists by transforming unused real estate into affordable work and presentation spaces.
