The Macallan has unveiled its oldest single malt to date.
The Reach is an 81-year-old whisky that was distilled during The Second World War in 1940. The expression was matured in a Sherry-seasoned oak cask.
Brand owner Edrington has released 288 bottles of The Reach, each having been hand-made from mouth-blown glass and presented on a bronze sculpture of three hands, made by Scottish artist Saskia Robinson.
The Macallan’s master whisky maker, Kirsteen Campbell, said: “It is an honour to introduce The Reach. Created during a turbulent time in the world, this extraordinary expression showcases The Macallan’s history, ingenuity and unmistakable strength of character.”
The iteration will be on display at The Macallan Estate Boutique from today (9 February) and later in The Macallan domestic and travel retail outlets.
Also this week, Gordan & MacPail launched a new single malt from its Benromach Scotch whisky brand. Benromach Cara Gold is limited to 6,000 units and retails in the UK for GBP49.99 (US$67) per 70cl bottle.
