The Macallan Edition No. 5, celebrating natural colour
The Vision Behind the Edition Series
The Macallan Edition Series is a celebration of our unwavering dedication and commitment to the art of whisky making. We hand-select a collection of unique casks each year, chosen for their special and distinctive character to create a new Edition that exemplifies the diversity of oak casks used in the maturation of The Macallan whiskies. Collaborating with partners from different fields of expertise, each release in the series is individual—a true marriage of The Macallan mastery and the unique influence from diverse backgrounds to the whisky making process.
Edition No.1 celebrates The Macallan’s unparalleled oak cask management policy that oversees the entire process from oak source to finished, seasoned cask. This expression is matured in eight distinct European and American oak cask styles.
Edition No. 2 is a collaboration between The Macallan and masters of taste, the Roca Brothers. Each of the seven exceptional oak cask styles chosen represent the creative spirit of each of the four collaborators.
Edition No. 3 brings together the The Macallan and master perfumer, Roja Dove, uniting the worlds of whisky and aroma to showcase the complexities of single malt character.
Edition No. 4 celebrates the world of architecture and design. This limited edition embodies the craftsmanship and innovative design of the new Macallan Distillery.
A Colour-led Collaboration
“We can find much common ground between whisky making and colour creation and with Edition No. 5 we have been able to explore and celebrate these two art forms."Sarah Burgess, The Macallan Whisky Maker
