Scotland’s Oldest Working Distillery, The Glenturret, has released a whisky decanter in collaboration with master glass makers Lalique and renowned American artist James Turrell.
The Eight Decades decanters were created as a celebration of the artist’s eightieth year, with just 80 available world wide.
It is the first time the celebrated artist has worked on a whisky decanter.
Scotland’s first fragrance house has teamed up with The Macallan to create two candles inspired by the spirit.
Each 220g candle’s wax is infused with a blend of naturally-sourced notes, a portrait of the spirit of The Macallan.
Nurtured by Nature has been inspired by The Macallan Estate, with notes of sky, river, and woodland, and has a fresh, outdoor, expansive scent.
Spiritual Home was inspired by Easter Elchies House, the spiritual home of The Macallan within The Macallan Estate.
The nostalgic scent portrays the comforting atmosphere and warm Scottish welcome, with notes of warming spice, velvet rose, leather and fireside woods.
The Macallan x Kingdom Scotland candles are currently exclusively available at The Macallan distillery boutique and online.
