Macallan Genesis Bottling Marks Opening of New £140m distillery
Macallan, the Speyside distillery that has had a busy year so far, is to launch this remarkable Macallan Genesis Limited Edition. This single malt is designed to celebrate the opening of its new £140m distillery.
Celebrate Opening of New Distillery
This limited edition release, of only 2,500 bottles, is accompanied with details of senior partner and lead architect Graham Stirk’s vision for the new distillery and includes a signed lithographic print depicting an elevation of the building. The print was created on one of only two map printing presses in the UK, using cotton paper produced by Italian paper mill Magnani – which will ‘never degrade’ with appropriate care.
This beautifully designed presentation box includes a signed elevation drawing of their new distillery
The new whisky will only be available from the new distillery or one of Macallan’s own airport shops and will cost £495/US$695.
The elegant whisky is bottled at 45.5% abv and is said to have a subtle taste of sweet dried fruits, oak, apple, chocolate, plus cinnamon and ginger, with a warming finish.
Working in Partnership
This highly collectable set is a collaboration between Macallan and Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners, the architects responsible for creating the new distillery and visitor centre and shows what is possible when looking to celebrate any significant event or occasion.
Cask 88 regularly work with organisations, societies & groups or private individuals to create equally impressive independent bottlings. In the last year, we have helped create an independent bottling for the prestigious Peninsula Hotel in Shanghai. This world renowned resort wanted its own signature whisky for customers to enjoy at its bars and restaurants.
Our belief in the importance of Independent Bottlings means that we also create our own. Only last month, we released the first bottling in the Cask 88 Scottish Folklore Series:
The Cask 88 Scottish Folklore Series will consist of six unique, single cask expressions; each expression will dictate the myth or legend it embodies. This approach is designed to bond the stories of Scotland’s unique history with the very finest expressions of its spirit.
The first release in the Scottish Folklore Series is an instant classic, featuring a fearsome legendary beast said to roam the Highlands of Scotland, the Cù-Sìth. It is outstanding 45 Year Old single cask expression from Ben Nevis Highlands distillery.
