Beautiful, limited edition objets d'art

The Macallan 60 Years Old in Lalique

The Macallan has worked in partnership with Lalique for over six years creating beautiful, limited edition objets d'arts. We now unveil a new limited edition decanter inspired by the curiously small stills at The Macallan distillery. This is the fourth decanter in our limited edition The Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars Collection.

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 will be 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 years old 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 containing an exceptionally rare 55 year old single malt whisky. 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.

Now the next chapter in the story of The Macallan and Lalique sees the unveiling of the fourth decanter. Inspired by the unique Curiously Small Stills, this decanter continues the journey of the Six Pillars and introduces another exceptionally rare single malt whisky – The Macallan 60 years old.

This Macallan in Lalique decanter has been designed by Lalique's renowned design team based at their studio in Paris, inspired by the artistic genius of René Lalique's legacy and The Macallan's Curiously Small Stills that give the whisky its distinctive fruity aromas and rich mouth feel.

The design features of the decanter mirror the specific shapes and aspects of the still including a circle of raised 'cabochons' reflecting the riveted entry hatch on the still and the copper cap atop the crystal stopper made from an old Macallan spirit still.

The decanter was blown, pressed, fashioned, cut, engraved and polished at Lalique's factory in Wingen-sur-Moder in the Alsace region of France, close to Strasbourg. During the process it passes through the hands of up to 15 of Lalique's Master Crystal Makers to create a flawless and unique objet d'art. Accredited 'Artists' who train for up to 20 years, many have attained the 'Meilleur ouvrier de France' – the finest craftsman of France award.

To gain further insight into the world of Lalique and the creation of the decanter, click here and read an interview with Marc Larminaux, Designer at Lalique.
Let us also share with you some fascinating Lalique film footage showing the creation of the decanter.
