The Macallan Releases 62-Year-Old Whiskey in an Exquisite Lalique Decanter
The Macallan in Lalique collection is the result of a collaboration between two leading names in their respective fields, one a very successful Scotch distillery, the other a world-renowned glass maker.
The Spiritual Home Decanter is the fifth release of the series, an excellent Lalique decanter containing 62-year-old Macallan, the second oldest whisky ever bottled. Created with great attention to detail by the skilled Lalique artisans, three of its sides have a frosted texture, hinting at The Macallan manor’s sandstone walls. An additional symbolic touch is the adding of the initials of Captain John Grant (JEG), the man who built Easter Elchies House, the brand’s spiritual home.
The Macallan 62-year-old has a bold cherry color, with a rich aroma encompassing flavors of toffee, raisin and blood orange and hints of spices like cinnamon and ginger, chocolate, and vanilla, and has rich taste, comprising of dried fruit and citrus, with a long woody finish. The Spiritual Home Decanter will be released as a 400-item collection, available for $25,000 each.
