The Macallan unveils The 1824 Series in Edinburgh
The 1824 series unveiled
In September 2012 we introduced you to The Macallan Gold, the first in The 1824 Series, a range showcasing two of our greatest strengths; oak sherry casks and natural colour, and now to complete the line up of this stunning new range we bring you The Macallan Amber, Sienna and Ruby.
To officially welcome this new collection to the UK, we hosted an event at The Caledonian, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland where guest joined us in The Pompadour. A particularly fitting venue for the launch of The Macallan 1824 Series given the venue played host to scenes from Ken Loach’s film, The Angel’s Share.
Guests were greeted with cocktails inspired by The Macallan Amber. You too can recreate our exciting new recipes that compliment the notes of fresh green apples, lemons and cinnamon offered by this stylish malt.
50ml The Macallan Amber
20ml Bols Dry Orange
Dash Barrel aged Bitters
Blood and Sand
25ml The Macallan Amber
25ml sweet vermouth
25ml cherry liqueur
25ml freshly squeezed orange juice
1 brandied cherry, to garnish
Treated to a tutored nosing and tasting of Gold, Amber, Sienna and Ruby from Brand Ambassador, Joy Elliott, guests were taken on a journey of natural colour, aromas and flavours spanning lemon and cinnamon to notes of honey, vanilla and sultanas. Every person’s sense of smell and taste is as individual as their fingerprint and guests were shown how to nose, taste and truly savour this exciting new range.
So, we thought we’d share some of our photos with you. Let us know what you think!
