The Macallan in collaboration with the French luxury crystal house Lalique have launched ‘The Spiritual Home’, the fifth edition of The Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars Collection. The rare 62 –year-old single malt Scotch whisky is the second oldest Macallan ever released.
The exquisite Lalique decanter was inspired by the Easter Elchies House built in 1700 by Captain John Grant on the Macallan Estate. The initials of Captain John Grant (JEG) are also etched on the decanter. The Easter Elchies House is a fine example of a Highland manor house. The Macallan estate lies in an area of great natural beauty; its scale and diversity is unique among distilleries and is managed in harmony with the beautiful landscape. The estate covers 390 acres, of which some 90 acres are sown in the spring.
The Six Pillar series since 2005 has combined the creativity and craftsmanship of The Macallan and Lalique. Previous decanters from the Six Pillars collection include: The Macallan 50 years old Exceptional Oak Casks Decanter, The Macallan 55 years old Natural Color Decanter, The Macallan 57 years old Finest Cut Decanter, and The Macallan 60 years old Curiously Small Stills Decanter.
The Macallan 62 years old is rich with aromatic notes of toffee, raisin, blood orange, ginger, cinnamon and chocolate. It ends with long and embracing layers of dark vanilla embellished by soft burnished oak.
Only 400 of these Macallan 62 Year Old In Lalique priced at $25,000 each will be released worldwide.
