The Macallan in Lalique

The Golden Age Of Travel: The Airship

A luxurious single malt encased in a stunning decanter celebrating the far-reaching innovations of the 1930s.

The Airship

The Culmination of a Stunning Series

Calling back to an elegant period in time where the world opened up to new adventures, this fifth and final release from the exquisite Golden Age of Travel series brings our exploration of this fascinating period of history to a close.

A collaboration with French crystal makers Lalique, contained within this exquisite vessel is The Macallan 1940 (35 Years Old) that distils the essence of bygone eras, a time of great change and the seemingly endless opportunities through international travel. The 1930s was a time of luxury and elegance, and during this period casks were carefully laid down at The Macallan Distillery to rest in warehouses, embarking on their own extraordinary voyage.
The liquid is beautifully showcased in a handcrafted Lalique crystal decanter, and features an illustration of one of the most innovative developments of the era in the first civil air transportation machine. This era allowed the discovery of new and exotic places made possible through luxury travel.

Exclusive to Global Travel Retail and The Macallan Boutiques, this is the final release in this remarkable limited edition series.

The glamorous Golden Age of Travel is one which is synonymous with Lalique and its founding father, René Lalique, who created some of his finest works that now define the era including glass lighting decoration for the Normandie ocean liner’s dining room and the beautiful glass panels in the ‘wagon présidentiel’ on the Orient Express train in the 1930’s.

The Macallan 1940 is an exceptional liquid that is testament to The Golden Age of Travel, and the period of glamour and style it represents.
