Entered into our next Fine Wines & Spirits Auction taking place on the 20th August is an incredibly rare, fine, and sought-after whisky. An exclusive and limited edition collaboration between whisky giants Macallan and glassmakers Lalique has resulted in this 2011 release. Limited to only 400 decanters, this truly special whisky features a wonderfully crafted glass decanter, crafted and signed by Lalique, filled with 60-year-old Macallan whisky.
Speaking of the impeccable design of this piece, Wine & Spirits Specialist Peter Hopkins explains "the Art Deco-inspired decanter champions the "Curiously Small Stills" pillar." According to Macallan "Lalique echoed the round kettle shape of The Macallan's small pot stills, visible at the sides of this decanter. The stopper mimics the shape of the handle complete with copper from a retired still, whilst the cabochon detail mirrors the oval-shaped rivets around the stills’ windows."
This limited edition bottle is number 129 of 400, and rarer still as a small part of the production that has been filled at 750 ml, in accordance with American filling standards.
The bottle itself is in absolutely perfect condition and remains in the original presentation casket including the Macallan protective outer packaging.
The lot is offered with an estimate of £55,000-65,000 and is expected to generate international interest from collectors across the globe for its rarity, condition and design prowess.
