There’s whisky in the jar…

It’s almost as if The Macallan and Highland Park have given each other a heads up! Both of these famous Single Malt distilleries are indulging us this year with gift sets, each of which is hovering around the £10 000 mark, that offer us a little taste of art with our whisky. But, be warned, there are not enough for everyone!
The Macallan: Elementary, my dear Watson!

Albert Watson (Scottish photographer of nude Kate Moss prints) has teamed up with the famous Scottish single malt distillery, The Macallan, to produce 36 new limited edition gift sets, each comprising a bottle of The Macallan 1946 and accompanied by a one-off platinum print created by Watson himself. Another 1000 box sets will be available and will contain a bottle of The Macallan Sherry Oak 20-year-old whisky as well as a specially commissioned set of 10 portfolio prints taken by Albert Watson and retracing the history of The Macallan casks.

Highland Park at its best

Two centuries after its creation, the Highland Park distillery is now one of the few distilleries to malt its own barley and to kiln dry the malt using peat from its own moorlands. To celebrate this know-how and the meticulous care taken to produce such exceptional malts, the Highland Park whisky house is this year unveiling a prestigious Highland Park 50 Year Old, of which just 275 will be produced. This unique single malt boasts a burnished mahogany colour with spicy tannins and muscovado sugar flavours.
