From the Winery:
Both myself and the six Magnum Photographers have loved visiting The Macallan and witnessing this amazing building grow out of the ground. We first visited the site when it was just a hole in the ground so we all feel very connected to this wonderful piece of architecture... This beautiful part of Scotland will forever be a big part of Magnum Photos history. Tim Paton, Magnum Photos
McCurry, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Mark Power, Gueorgui Pinkhassov, and Alec Soth - captures different aspects of the iconic distillery from genesis to completion. From the landscape and the materials from which the distillery is born to the character of the workers and protagonists who have brought it to fruition, artistic portraiture of people and casks complement more abstract representations of the building and its unique structure.
This magnificent and world-class collectible set of images comes together as a limited edition objet d’art, presented in a stunning archive-style gift box. It comprises a special limited release whisky; a selection of six signed prints, one from each photographer, and an exclusive book of photography.
A spicy gingered cask reflects McCurry’s bold and brave style; a cask of age where oak influence prevails over individual characteristics symbolizes Parr’s oblique view of the world;
A classic cask with an intense black cherry note complements Pellegrin’s forceful black and white pictures; two casks reflect Power’s photography which captures the familiar but from an often obscure point of view.
An ex-European red wine cask imparting a rich mahogany red color represents Pinkhassov’s contrasting and brightly colored work; a first-fill American barrel with its delicate citrus notes captures Soth’s heritage and spirit of adventure.
The resulting final cask is an intensely sweet yet classic Macallan with edge and depth, bringing the whole creation together and representing the imagination and brilliance of Magnum.

COLOUR - Deep amber with rose gold hues.
NOSE - Light hints of peat layered into warm spiced ginger with mellow oak notes. Gently coming behind these notes, are an almost tangerine citrus and caramelized apple.
PALATE - Candied dried fruits and a butterscotch sweetness with a tickling of spice that moves into a honeyed nut note.
FINISH - Medium to long finish ending in sweet earthy peat notes.
