THE MACALLAN
FINE & RARE 1990

1990

The Year that Was

Nelson Mandela is released from prison in South Africa. Glasgow enjoys a year in the spotlight as the European Capital of Culture, and West Germany wins the World Cup, prior to reunification with East Germany later in the year. The first digital camera goes on sale in the US, and the first known web page is written. UK Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher resigns and is replaced by John Major.
