Un decantador de whisky que fusiona llama y espirituoso

La búsqueda de la excelencia de Lalique y The Macallan

Muy de vez en cuando, uno conoce a una persona o a un grupo que comparte su visión y su búsqueda de la excelencia, con la suficiente valentía como para elegir algo más grande. Son personas poco frecuentes, pues rechazan los atajos, no temen arriesgarse si el riesgo merece la pena, pero sin poner en peligro lo que más importa. Aún así, también son humildes por naturaleza, conocedores de cuánto les queda por aprender y encontrar.

Estos son los valores iniciales comunes que nos guiaron hasta Lalique.

 

Atraídos por su sentido común de la herencia, la artesanía y la creatividad, nos asociamos con Lalique por vez primera en 2005, con el fin de crear una colaboración fundamental basada en nuestros seis pilares fundadores. La innovación del futuro ha de nutrirse del pasado, no es posible establecer una ruta sólida sin saber de dónde se procede. Esto nos inspiró para crear una colección que se nutriese de nuestra rica historia, expresada a través del espirituoso y de las llamas, ya que tanto el legendario cristal de Lalique como el sabor particular de nuestro whisky han sido forjados por el fuego.

ABOUT LALIQUE CRYSTAL

Founded in 1888, Lalique is widely recognised as one of the crown jewels of France’s crystal glass industry. René Lalique, renowned as the inventor of modern jewellery, went on to become a master in the art of glassmaking. Over time, his name has become the powerful symbol of a unique expertise, a synonym for luxury, excellence, creativity and for a widely celebrated artistic style. 

  • Through its contemporary work in six areas, Lalique revives and pursues the creative, eclectic work of its founder: jewellery, decorative items, interior design, fragrances, art, as well as hospitality
  • All crystal items are handcrafted in the company’s sole manufacturing site, which has been located in the Alsace region in France since 1921
  • A Lalique crystal worker is considered a ‘trainee’ for around 5-10 years
  • Lalique continues to thrive as a truly timeless lifestyle brand

Twin Pursuits of Mastery

The Macallan and Lalique are highly regarded masters in their respective fields, and both are dedicated artists with an obsessive pursuit of perfection. Thus it was a natural collaboration between two brands renowned for their craftsmanship, bringing together the undisputed ‘Masters of Crystal’ with the ‘Masters of Spirit and Wood’. The care, investment and sacrifice that we make in our wood is paralleled in these crystal craftsmen.  The standards are high, and they must be met or exceeded. For our past collaborations as many as 15 Lalique craftsmen and women have been involved in hand-making and crafting each of The Macallan decanters. Such is the level of perfection, around 50% of all decanters that come out of the kiln are rejected because of minute flaws. The details matter when perfection is the standard.

Since beginning to work together thirteen years ago, The Macallan and Lalique have collaborated on a range of exquisite decanters and products. Each possess their own distinct history and example of craftsmanship, including The Macallan 64 Years Old Cire Perdue, The Macallan Masters Decanter Series, and The Macallan Golden Age of Travel. The united vision and unwavering determination to choose a bigger life is the strength behind the long-standing partnership, which has seen The Macallan and Lalique allied together by a commitment to craft, mastery and beauty.
