The 4th limited edition of the Curiously Small Stills Decanter was launched as a result of prestigious cooperation between the French house Lalique and The Macallan. Exceptionally rare 60 years old Macallan single malt whiskey in stunning decanter was unveiled at the TFWA Cannes show four days ago.
This special, rare single malt whiskey has been drawn from five sherry butts and is made from a mix of Spanish and American oak that was filled on the 9th and 10th of November in 1950! The spirits is 53% abv. The Macallan in Lalique Curiously Small Stills decanter is limited to 400 handmade decanters and they are expected to retail for $20,000. Each decanter bears the esteemed Lalique France signature, which symbolises authenticity and over 100 years of creativity, heritage and craftsmanship, and comes in a beautifully designed lacquer presentation box, with a crystal stopper and a collectors guide, detailing the craftsmanship that has gone into producing this beautiful object d’art.
David Cox, the director of fine and rare whiskies at The Macallan, said that he expects the majority of bottles to be sold in Asia Pacific, specifically Taiwan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Singapore and China. He also commented: 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. The stills themselves are the smallest on Speyside, concentrating the spirit to create The Macallan’s rich, fruity, full-bodied flavours. Over the years, we have drawn on the some of its oldest and rarest stocks to create extraordinary examples of this great single malt for connoisseurs and collectors alike. [The Macallan]
