The fifth and penultimate decanter in our Lalique collection

Introducing The Macallan in Lalique V: The Spiritual Home

We’re thrilled to be able to share with you today our latest masterpiece in collaboration with Lalique... ‘The Macallan in Lalique V: The Spiritual Home’. They say ‘home is where the heart is’ and that is certainly the case with this decanter inspired by Easter Elchies House on our Speyside Estate, and the penultimate in our collection. The precious whisky encased in beautifully engraved crystal is an exquisite and very rare 62 years old Macallan single malt whisky, sure to steal hearts.

Lalique’s Marc Larminaux interpreted the harled surface applied to the sandstone walls of Easter Elchies House by creating a textured frosted surface on three sides of the decanter. One of the frosted sides features the bold initials, JEG, replicating the initials which are incorporated in the original date stone. These initials belong to Captain John Grant, who oversaw the building of the Jacobean manor house in 1700.

This collection has inspired interest from connoisseurs and collectors since its inception in 2005, representing a marriage of the finest and rarest Macallan single malt whiskies and bespoke designed decanters, interpreting our Six Pillars, from the master crystal craftsmen at Lalique.

There are very few distilleries that have whiskies as old as we do, and we are privileged to have the opportunity to present a magnificent 62 years old, originally filled in American oak sherry seasoned casks in November 1950. This is the second oldest Macallan ever released by our distillery since its foundation in 1824. This rich cherry coloured whisky has a strong treacle toffee opening leading into raisin and blood orange. Layers of sweet ginger figs and cigar leaf in viscous suspension are followed by woody oak flavours. It is polished yet shows the complexity of its age.

Limited to only 400 individually numbered decanters, the Spiritual Home edition will be highly desired and eagerly anticipated. It is valued at USD$25,000 and available now from specialist whisky retailers. What do you think of its intricate design? Do the sumptuous tasting notes speak to you?
