Where Music and Whisky come Together

Concept Number 2 is the second release in the Concept Series – a collection that fuses the passion behind The Macallan’s whisky making with innovative art, music and culture. A limited edition whisky created exclusively for Global Travel Retail, Concept Number 2 brings together music and whisky - two of the passions of The Macallan Whisky Maker, Steven Bremner.

Remarkably, Steven has combined his great interests in this expression – beyond being a Whisky Maker for The Macallan, he is also an avid house music DJ.

A Harmony of Flavours

The Macallan Concept Number 2 calls on exceptional casks to produce a rich and rewarding multi-sensory experience, where a powerful foundation is brought to life with flourishes and tones woven together to create a harmonious and vibrant work of art.

For Concept Number 2, sherry-seasoned American oak casks bring a rhythmic sweetness of vanilla, citrus and toffee. The rounded spiciness of Miguel Martin sherry casks creates an energetic treble while ex-bourbon casks introduce harmonies of floral citrus and vanilla.

Creating a track and crafting a single malt can take a similar path. Beginning with the layering of sounds just like the layering of different flavours from specific cask types. Each different cask brings its own influence to the character of the liquid, like each instrument, or sound, adds depth to a track. In both cases, we can alter each different element to play up or down particular sounds or flavours.
