자연스런 표현

영혼과 불꽃으로 탄생한 위스키 디캔터

Lalique과 Macallan의 완벽의 추구

가끔 우리는 자신의 비전과 탁월함을 추구하는 정신을 공유하는 개인이나 집단, 뭔가 더 큰 것을 선택할 수 있는 용기를 가진 이들을 만납니다. 쉬운 길을 거부한다는 점에서 그들은 흔치 않은 존재이며 감수할 가치가 있는 위험을 기꺼이 받아들이고 가장 중요한 것에 대해서는 절대 타협을 하지 않는 사람들입니다. 그러면서도 마음속 깊이 겸손함을 유지하고 더 배워야 하며 더 탐구해야 한다는 것을 인식하는 사람들입니다.

우리가 Lalique에게 우선적으로 끌린 것은 바로 이런 공통된 정신 때문이었습니다.

 

공통된 전통 의식, 장인정신 및 창의성에 매료되어 우리는 2005년에 처음으로 Lalique와 함께 손을 잡고 우리의 뿌리인 Six Pillars를 바탕으로 한 중요한 콜라보레이션을 시작했습니다. 미래의 혁신은 과거에 뿌리를 두어야 하며, 근원을 모르면 제대로 나아갈 방향을 정할 수 없습니다. 그러한 생각을 바탕으로 우리는 영혼과 불꽃을 통해 표현된 우리의 오랜 역사를 토대로 한 컬렉션을 구상했습니다. 여기서 불꽃은 Lalique의 전설적인 크리스탈 제품과 우리 위스키의 독보적인 풍미 모두가 불에 의해 형성된다는 것을 의미합니다.

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.
