FIRST LOOK: Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow & Green Meadow

   

The Macallan Harmony Collection has been Macallan's most sought after series in the last two years, having started with the Rich Cacao and then followed by the Intense Arabica - each has seen the Scotch distillery collaborate with a luminary in their own fields.

Now, we're in the third leg of the annual series, that let's not forget is all about spotlighting sustainable packaging materials from using discarded cacao husks to discarded coffee bean husks, and it seems like we're taking a trip to Scotland's meadows with Stella and Mary McCartney - unveiling the Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow.

Its Global Travel Retail accompaniment will be named Green Meadow.

  

 

"The Macallan Amber Meadow has been created in collaboration with Mary and Stella McCartney to celebrate our shared love of the lush and fertile lands of Scotland and the serene nature that lies within it.

To mark our deep connection with the land, discarded meadow cuttings have been given new life in this presentation box and bottle labels.

Our Whisky Mastery Team has taken inspiration from natural Scottish grasslands and created a single malt aged in both sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks, redolent of warm meadows and mature barley fields, with a rich, citrus scented finish."
