Craftsmanship and creativity

A Partnership of Craftsmen

Attracted by a shared sense of heritage, craftsmanship and creativity, The Macallan and Lalique came together in 2005. The outcome of this partnership is a series of six Lalique crystal decanters, each celebrating a particular facet of The Macallan that makes it special (The Six Pillars), and each holding some of the oldest and rarest whiskies ever released by the distillery.

The first was The Macallan's Exceptional Oak Casks decanter featuring exquisite 50 year cask strength single malt whisky, which remained undisturbed for half a century at Easter Elchies House on Speyside, Scotland. Inspiration was taken from Natural Colour for the second decanter in the Series. This stunning limited edition contained an exceptionally rare 55 year old single malt whisky for only 420 decanters. The Finest Cut, the fraction of the new make spirit filled into casks for maturation, gave life to the third decanter which contained rare 57 year old single malt, vatted together from two casks.

To mark the 150th anniversary of the birth of René Lalique, we again combined our creativity and craftsmanship to produce the world's most valuable decanter of whisky - using the cire perdue, or 'lost wax', process to create a one-off piece of art. The unique decanter, containing the oldest and rarest Macallan ever released, at 64 years old, was auctioned at Sotheby's New York for a world record breaking price of US$460,000. All proceeds were donated to charity: water, an organisation dedicated to providing developing countries with clean, safe drinking water.

Now the next chapter in the story of The Macallan and Lalique sees the unveiling of the fourth decanter in the 'The Macallan in Lalique' Series. Inspired by the unique Curiously Small Stills, this decanter continues the journey of the Six Pillars and introduces another exceptionally rare single malt whisky to the delight of collectors and connoisseurs alike.
