Edrington has released a limited-edition, Global Travel Retail iteration from its high-end The Macallan single malt Scotch whisky brand.

Folio 6 is the latest expression in The Macallan’s ‘Archival Series’, commemorating the brand’s advertising campaigns over the last 50 years. Each bottling of the no-aged-statemented whisky is accompanied by a booklet that recounts the story of Allan Shiach, The Macallan’s chairman in 1984.

The variant will be available exclusively at The Macallan outlets at Dubai DXB, London Heathrow and Taiwan Taoyuan airports.

In August, Edrington re-located parts of its Global Travel Retail unit from Singapore to Scotland as a result of the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on the channel.
