The Macallan Fine & Rare 1953

1953

THE YEAR THAT WAS

Sir Edmund Hillary and Sherpa Tenzing became the first humans to reach the summit of Mount Everest. Queen Elizabeth II was crowned in Westminster Abbey. In the Soviet Union, Joseph Stalin died, and ‘The Crucible’, Arthur Miller’s allegory of the Communist witch-hunt, premiered in the US. In Paris, audiences were treated to the first performance of Samuel Beckett’s ‘Waiting for Godot’.
