The Macallan M launches in Harrods
UK Launch of M Decanter
Guests savoured 'The Three Masters' cocktails inspired by M's three masters: The Macallan, Fabien Baron and Lalique. You too can create this opulent serve; simply stir The Macallan Gold gently with chocolate bitters and ginger syrup. Serve still over a block of ice with a swath of orange peel and present in a whisky tumbler.
After enjoying 'The Three Masters' whilst listening to beautiful melodies courtesy of a trio of classical musicians in Harrods Spirits Rooms, guests were escorted to Frescobaldi to begin their Six Pillar private dining experience hosted by David Cox, Director of Fine & Rare whiskies at The Macallan.
Each course of the specially created Six Pillar Dinner was paired to perfection with a dram of our single malt and M’s tasting notes were brought to life in a dramatic floral table runner, boasting green apples, juicy oranges and cinnamon sticks.
The Spiritual Home course came in the form of chowder with seared scallop and was served with The Macallan Amber whose vanilla and citrus aromas matched the creaminess perfectly. The Curiously Small Stills and The Finest Cut course was breast of duck, smoked carrots and an orange reduction, which perfectly complimented the orange and chocolate taste of The Macallan Sienna. The Exceptional Oak Casks and The Natural Colour course was the sumptuously sweet Cambridge tart with winter fruit compote and pistachio ice cream, paired with The Macallan Ruby which was really an additional dessert with its rich flavours of dried fruit.
Dinner was followed by blood orange sorbet as a palette cleanser before guests were served The Peerless Spirit course: The Macallan M. David took guests on a journey through their senses, nosing and tasting M's stunning liquid - a single malt of the most exquisite complexity and character.
