The Macallan Fine & Rare Tim Walker 1920s Decade Design

Journey Into

The 1920s

The small hand ticks at measured pace. The second hand, on the perimeter of a wider world, speeds along by comparison. So it is on The Macallan Estate, where the days are determined by a precise dial, no matter the velocity of life elsewhere.

The unchanging landscape of fields and woodland is overseen from an eagle’s clear perspective. Barometric readings tick off passing seasons. There is plenty of pause for thought, due contemplation of the natural surroundings. These elements combine, locked together securely, keys to an enduring character that is always independent but never isolated.

A Rare Moment

The 1920s

Abroad, some seek solace in the Roaring Twenties, following the storms of the Great War. Others pursue their paths with renewed diligence. Scotsman John Logie Baird introduces the world to television for the first time ever in this same year of 1926. At once, imaginations are transported at the flick of a switch. The invention’s immediacy is a far cry from the stately progress of the steam trains that once stopped at Dandeleith Station, the old railway station that sat below The Macallan, exchanging their hauls of coal, casks and barley for mature whisky to ship both home and abroad.

The product of profound values, The Macallan Fine & Rare 1926 represents, in turn, the most valuable bottle of single malt whisky ever recorded. It could not have come from a more treasured home.

The Macallan Fine & Rare 1926 broke the record for the most valuable bottle of wine or spirit ever sold at auction when it achieved $1.9m as part of The Ultimate Whisky Collection, which sold at Sotheby’s in October 2019. I have been lucky enough to taste some of the bottles from this collection and can attest to their value being based on quality. The Macallan’s Fine & Rare whiskies are exceptional and collectors are pursuing them for their excellence.
