THE MACALLAN REVEALS SECOND STUNNING 1930’S INSPIRED LALIQUE DECANTER
The Macallan’s latest collaboration with Lalique is The Macallan Golden Age of Travel, a release that re-lives the glamour of the 1930s and celebrates the first era of international travel by road, rail, air, and by sea.
After the launch of Ocean liner in 2015, The Macallan reveals the second decanter: The Aeroplane.
The highly anticipated second release features an exceptionally rare period Macallan, distilled in 1937. This scarce Macallan vintage was first bottled in 1972, and rebottled in 2016. The whisky is showcased in a handcrafted Lalique crystal decanter, of which only 50 have been made, and features an illustration of an early passenger aeroplane, commemorating the glamorous days of trans-Atlantic adventures.
Lalique’s Chairman and CEO Silvio Denz, said: “The glamorous Golden Age of Travel is one which is synonymous with Lalique and its founding father, René Lalique who created some of his finest works that now define the era including the iconic panels that decorated the dining carriage aboard the Orient Express. With a shared passion for craftsmanship, honouring tradition and know how gained over generations, Lalique and The Macallan are kindred spirits. We are delighted to continue our partnership with the second decanter in The Golden Age of Travel series, creating unique work of the finest quality and technical complexity.”
Geoff Kirk, Director of Prestige for The Macallan, said: “This very rare and special Macallan single malt whisky distilled in 1937, combined with a highly exclusive crystal decanter from our friends and partners at Lalique, make this yet another exquisite and standout collaboration.”
