Scottish whiskey maker Macallan has become an enviable name for the scotch whiskey enthusiasts. Macallan has earned its name by selling world’s most expensive whiskey 1926 Macallan and also marked its presence by introducing 50-year-old bottle of Macallan whisky that sold for a record $18,650 at the world’s biggest whisky sale. Yet again, Macallan and renowned crystal house Lalique have partnered to come up with the fourth edition of the decanter in The Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars Collection after the three successful decanters.
This edition is filled with rare 60 years old single malt whiskey in a beautifully designed bottle by legendary French crystal house Lalique. The bottle is definitely a collector’s item and hence the production is restricted to only 400 bottles. This 60 years old whiskey was obtained from five sherry butts and was produced from a blend of American and Spanish oak. The bottles were filled on 9th and 10th of November 1950 and since then it's left to age to render a perfect taste to the whiskey.
Director of Macallan Whiskey states:
Our relationship with Lalique goes from strength to strength and this fourth collaboration further reinforces our very strong partnership.The Six Pillars, those elements which combine to give this great single malt its distinctive quality and character, continue to provide the inspiration for these stunning decanters.The addition of the Curiously Small Stills decanter continues this fascinating journey through the heart of The Macallan.
