Celebrating a once in a lifetime collection “The Macallan Legacy Collection” – Scotch Whisky News
Since 2005 The Macallan and master French crystal maker Lalique have united behind an unwavering commitment to craft, mastery and beauty. Nowhere is this more evident than in The Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars odyssey, an exclusive series of limited edition decanters inspired by the foundations upon which The Macallan creates its exceptional single malt whiskies. Now, for the first and only time direct from The Macallan, the complete Six Pillars collection will be available to buy at auction, with all net proceeds going to charity.
Celebrating the decade-long partnership and the unique approach to the art of both crystal and whisky production in the obsessive pursuit of perfection, The Macallan in Lalique Legacy Collection brings together some of the rarest of The Macallan single malts, aged from 50 to 65 years old. The Legacy Collection is housed in a bespoke natural ebony cabinet created by Lalique Maison and includes six pairs of specially designed Lalique Macallan glasses. The cabinet also holds six of The Macallan Fine & Rare miniatures; two from each of the 1937, 1938 and 1939 vintages, signifying the zenith of Lalique’s creative contribution in the French Art Deco period. The grand finale of an incredible collaboration, The Macallan in Lalique Legacy Collection will go to auction for charity at Sotheby’s Hong Kong on Sunday 2nd April 2017.
