Folio 5

The Luggy Bonnet: a tale of missed opportunity and the need to "keep this knot firmly tied".

How to Avoid Disaster

Keep this Knot Firmly Tied

The Macallan Folio 5 commemorates an advert featuring the tale of a “Luggy Bonnet” with the words “Keep this knot firmly tied”. The sketched image recollects a scene of acquaintances at the end of a day on Speyside when one sportsman talks of a so-called “disaster”, missing the opportunity of a dram of The Macallan from the "Laird" as a result of his hat covering his ears. 

The allure of this captivating Single Malt whisky features a rich aroma of dates and fresh figs that make way to sweet raisin, mingled with a warming ginger and wood spice. The whisky is inspired by the iconic advert and brings this memorable campaign to life once again.
