The Steam Train

Luxury Travel By Steam

Featuring an exceptionally rare Macallan, distilled in 1937, this scarce single malt vintage was first bottled in 1973, and rebottled in 2017. Deep russet red in colour, it is a rare and special Macallan that explodes with flavours of spice, toasted oak, Seville oranges and rose oil. The sensuous natural colour suggests a higher proportion of second fill Spanish sherry-seasoned oak casks were used, supported by American oak - a result of the shortage of casks during the years of the Spanish Civil War. Over the years this whisky has developed a unique character, defined by a vibrancy of flavours on the palate and a long smooth finish.

The inspiration for the handcrafted Lalique crystal decanter design comes from Lalique’s founder, Rene Lalique, who designed and made the ornate glass panels in the ‘wagon présidentiel’ on the infamous Orient Express.
