The Macallan and French crystal house Lalique have collaborated in the launch of a second limited edition decanter, containing a rare single malt whisky, due to roll out across the US next year.

The partnership said today (8 November) that 'The Natural Colour decanter' is the second in what is planned to be a series of six based on "The Macallan's Six Pillars" and will contain the Macallan 55 years old single malt whisky.

The Macallan US brand manager at Rémy Cointreau USA Eric Maldonado said: "The first Lalique decanter, containing The Macallan 50 Years Old single malt, was launched in 2005 and proved a huge success. Since then we have seen an increase in demand for our rarer whiskies, proof that we were moving in the right direction by extending our partnership with Lalique to produce a series of decanters containing the finest The Macallan single malt."

Lalique North America president and CEO Guillaume Gauthereau, president added: "The Natural Colour decanter was created by our design team in Paris and is based on the classic Paquerettes tiara perfume bottle designed by Rene Lalique in 1910. It is a mix of masculine and feminine shapes and the stopper is made in amber coloured crystal, one of the most difficult colours for crystal makers to achieve."

Only 420 of The Macallan 55 Years Old in Lalique will be produced and will be available from selected boutiques in the US, UK, Asia and Russia, with 100 of these going to the US next January.

Each decanter, retailing at US$12,000, will bear the 'Lalique France' signature and will be presented in a leather and silk presentation box, with a crystal stopper and a leather-bound collector's guide.
