The Macallan Unveils M

In a collaboration between three masters of their crafts, The Macallan has unveiled a limited edition luxury decanter, M.

The Macallan M

Partnering with renowned creative director Fabien Baron and crystal makers Lalique, The Macallan unveiled a beautifully designed and meticulously crafted crystal decanter containing precious and complex Macallan single malt whisky at an exclusive evening tasting at Harrods.

Just 1,750 crystal decanters of M, each engraved with its own individual number, are available worldwide. M’s whisky draws upon The Macallan’s classic full flavoured tradition with notes of abundant dried fruits, spices and orange citrus. With a rich natural colour, complexity and sumptuous intensity, the single malt is laden with character absorbed from the Spanish sherry oak casks that nurture it through the maturation process.

The decanter’s six striking facets are Baron’s homage to The Macallan’s heritage, reflecting the six pillars at the heart of its ethos: The Spiritual Home – the breathtaking 390-acre Macallan Speyside estate where M was created; the distillery’s Curiously Small Stills, whose unique shape gives the spirit its fruity, rich character; The Finest Cut, the 16% of the new make spirit, the smallest figure in the industry, selected for maturation; Exceptional Oak Casks, acquired and cared for without thought to the cost, imparting its distinctive characteristics and flavour; Natural Colour created purely through the interaction between spirit and wood; and The Peerless Spirit, marking The Macallan’s unsurpassed place in the hearts of the world’s most discerning whisky drinkers.

M is available at specialist whisky retailers in the UK from October, RRP £3000.
