We came together with Nicola Benedetti, renowned classical violinist, for Tales of The Macallan Volume 1. This release is grounded in our history, beyond our founding in 1824 by Alexander Reid, to Captain John Grant and the cattle drovers and farmers who once cultivated the land in summer and distilled whisky in the winter months. Nicola brought this story to life through composing an original music score to retrace John Grant’s story using the emotive power of music.
The true essence of collaboration bears fruit when the outcome is greater than the sum of its individual parts. Such was our collaboration with Nicola, where what we explored together was bigger than what we could do as individuals.
