The Macallan Unveils M - A collaboration between three masters: The Macallan, Fabien Baron & Lalique - 10th October, 2013

The Macallan Unveils MIn a collaboration between three masters of their crafts, The Macallan has unveiled a limited edition luxury decanter, M.  Partnering with renowned creative director Fabien Baron and crystal makers Lalique, The Macallan has created a beautifully designed and meticulously crafted crystal decanter containing precious and complex Macallan single malt whisky.

Just 1,750 crystal decanters of M, each engraved with its own individual number, are available worldwide.  M’s whisky draws upon The Macallan’s classic full flavoured tradition with notes of abundant dried fruits, spices and orange citrus.  With a rich natural colour, complexity and sumptuous intensity, the single malt isladen with character absorbed from the Spanish sherry oak casks that nurture it through the maturation process.

David Cox, Director of Fine and Rare, The Macallan comments about by Unveils M

David Cox, Director of Fine and Rare, The Macallan, comments: “The coming together of three such masters has resulted in a truly beautiful creation, which specifically showcases the vital influence of The Macallan’s exceptional sherry seasoned oak casks and the craft of the Whisky Maker.  The natural colour of M is stunning. A single malt of the most exquisite complexity and character, M will set a new standard in the world of decanters to become the iconic representation of The Macallan.”

Capturing the expressive aesthetic of Fabien Baron’s illustrious creative vision, M’s tall, slim dimensions and geometric form challenge the perceptions of traditional decanter design. Its sharp, angular facets gave inspiration to the name M itself, selected by Baron as a typographic representation of the decanter’s striking design.

Its six striking facets are Baron’s homage to The Macallan’s heritage, reflecting the six pillars at the heart of its ethos: The Spiritual Home – the breathtaking 390-acre Macallan Speyside estate where M was created; the distillery’s Curiously Small Stills, whose unique shape gives the spirit its fruity, rich character; The Finest Cut, the 16% of the new make spirit, the smallest figure in the industry, selected for maturation; Exceptional Oak Casks, acquired and cared for without thought to the cost,  imparting its distinctive characteristics and flavour; Natural Colour created purely through the interaction between spirit and wood; and The Peerless Spirit, marking The Macallan’s unsurpassed place in the hearts of the world’s most discerning whisky drinkers.

Lalique has drawn on 150 years of crystal making,  and its long standing relationship with The Macallan, to present M with flawless clarity. Fashioned in highest grade crystal, each hand crafted decanter unites proven tradition with striking originality.

Silvio Denz, President and CEO of Lalique, comments: We have been delighted to have worked with our friends and long-time partners, The Macallan – with whom we have collaborated since 2004 – to realise this exquisite piece. The decanter styling is utterly unique in the world of decanters, and our masters of crystal have relished applying their most complex skills to this project to bring it to life.”

Fabien Baron, Founder and Creative Director of Baron & Baron comments: "I love the craftsmanship and purity of The Macallan. It's rare to find that level of quality today."

M is available at specialist whisky retailers in the UK from October, RRP £3000.
