The latest expression in the Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars Collection was aged for an impressive 62 years before bottling. This fifth masterpiece in famous rangeis the second oldest Macallan ever released since the distillery’s founding date of 1824 (the oldest being 2010’s 64 year old Cire Perdue). The single malt Scotch whisky spent its lifetime in American oak sherry seasoned casks which were filled in November 1950.
This single malt in the ultra-super-deluxe-premium range, named The Spiritual Home is made from exceedingly rare old stock, and bottled in Lalique crystal decanter which was inspired by the Easter Elchies House on the Macallan Estate. The frosted, textured sides represent the sandstone walls of the manor house, which was built in 1700 under the careful eye of Captain John Grant, whose initials are featured on the decanter.
The distinctive neck detailing is Lalique’s interpretation of the house’s gable ends, and the stopper is vaguely reminiscent of a chimney.
Only 400 of the Spiritual Home sets have been produced.
