The Six Pillars collection has been a collaboration between the Macallan and Lalique that has shown the very best of both brands, reflecting their incredible attention to detail and timelessness. “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,” said Ken Grier, brand director for The Macallan.

The design of the decanter was based on a single peerless drop of The Macallan, representing the most precious spirit in the world. The drop of Peerless Spirit falls from the Macallan inverted triangle, which can be found on every present day bottle of The Macallan. The first use of the triangle, can be traced back to Macallan bottling’s from the 19th century. The bottle’s overall design also derives from the blown and pinched technique that was used by René Lalique for many of his perfume bottles.
