Limited edition of 1,000 bottles celebrating the Royal Marriage

The Macallan unveils Royal Wedding commemorative edition

As the excitement mounts for the first Royal Wedding in 12 years, The Macallan has announced the release of a limited edition of 1,000 bottles celebrating the Royal Marriage of Prince William to Catherine Middleton on 29th April 2011.

The unique and collectable edition will feature exceptional single malt whisky taken from two casks, both filled on 29th April – one from 1996 and one from 1999. Bottled at 46.8% ABV, the single malt gives abundant wood spices combining with orange zest, floral and barley to produce a creamy overtone.

The creation of this special bottle follows the release of a commemorative edition to mark the marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981. This comprised two casks, one from each of their birth years. At the time, the bottle sold out and today is highly sought-after by collectors of The Macallan around the world.

In keeping with this original bottling, The Macallan has commissioned the creative force behind the 1981 bottle, David Holmes, who was also one of the architects of our advertising campaign in the 1980s and the early 1990s, to create the label and packaging design.

Tasting notes:

Colour: Golden amber

Nose: Cinnamon, ginger, clove, toffee apples, layered in vanilla. Chocolate orange flits in and out, along with summer fruits. Lightly floral and barley notes all come together in a delightful creamy overtone.

Palate: Abundant wood spices deliver an initial hit to the palate, giving a slightly oily texture. Fruits develop, balanced with soft oak tones. Orange zest, floral notes and barley all make an appearance later in the journey.

Finish: Soft, full, long lasting

ABV: 46.8%

The 1,000 bottles are available for purchase in the UK only either in person at The Macallan Distillery Visitor Centre and online at a price of £150 per bottle (excl. p&p).

Update 18th April 2011: The Royal Marriage bottling sold out in only a few days. Sorry to those who missed out. For those who've bought and tried, we'd love to read your tasting notes.
