Single malt whisky expert, The Macallan, has launched Tales of The Macallan Volume I in Global Travel Retail at The Macallan Boutiques and select shop-in-shops.

It is the first edition in a series of single malt whiskies that tell the story of The Macallan pioneers and their whisky-making legacy.

“Bringing to life The Macallan’s rich heritage is a key pillar of our storytelling in Global Travel Retail,” said Jeremy Speirs, Regional Managing Director for Edrington Global Travel Retail.

“The Tales of The Macallan series adds a new dimension to this, shining a light on some of the extraordinary individuals who have shaped the brand.

“Combining incredible liquid with beautiful packaging, the first bottling in this series will act as a real draw for global whisky connoisseurs visiting select locations in global travel retail.”

Tales of The Macallan Volume I is limited to 350 decanters worldwide and has an RRSP of $80,000.

It honours the legacy of Captain John Grant, The Laird of Easter Elchies (1659 – 1715), who realised the potential of the Easter Elchies Estate in Scotland, which has been the site of The Macallan Distillery since 1824.

A natural farmer, John worked the land to create the perfect conditions for growing barley and his labours helped to sustain a small farming community that would one day use its crops to distil whisky.

The story is told across the pages of the striking almanac book that The Macallan Volume I is presented in.

The book has been fittingly hand-crafted using luxurious leather and 24 carat gold leaf and the pages feature illustrations by Andrew Davidson.

The whisky, which was distilled in 1950 and bottled in 2021, comes in a handcrafted Lalique crystal decanter etched with one of Davidson’s illustrations.

The ‘distinctive and rare’ expression features wood spices, sweet wood smoke and antique oak with ripe fruits and spices.
