Macallan releases 62YO in Lalique decanter

10 December, 2013

Macallan and luxury glass producer Lalique have collaborated on a limited edition decanter containing a 62-year-old single malt.

The Spiritual Home edition is limited to 400 numbered decanters inspired by the textured walls of Easter Elchies House on the Macallan estate in Scotland.

It is the fifth in a series of six decanters being produced by Lalique to represent the distiller’s “six pillars” – the elements that Macallan says give its whisky its distinctive character.

David Cox, director of fine and rare whiskies, said: “This collection has inspired interest from connoisseurs and collectors since its inception in 2005.

“There are very few distilleries that have the aged stock profile that we do, and we are privileged to have the opportunity to produce a magnificent 62-year-old, originally filled to American oak sherry-seasoned casks in November 1950.

“This is the second oldest Macallan ever released by the distillery since its foundation in 1824.”   

The decanter is available in the UK from specialist whisky retailers with an rrp of £16,000.

Richard Hemming MW: beware inverse snobbery

Few things can bring communal pleasure so intimately as wine. Apart from a hot tub, perhaps.
