A new whisky celebrating the creation of the Macallan’s new distillery is being released. The Macallan Genesis Limited Edition pays homage to the iconic Distillery that was created in a unique collaboration with internationally acclaimed architects Rogers Stirk Harbour + Partners.

The bottling tells the story of lead architect Graham Stirk’s vision for the site and “reflects each painstaking step in The Macallan whisky-making process”.

The whisky is said to have notes of dried fruits, oak, fresh apple and chocolate on the nose. On the palate are flavours of dried fruits, cinnamon and ginger spices leading to a “clean and warming” finish.

Graham said: ‘The Macallan truly is a special place; a place we have come to love and respect hugely. The vision was always ambitious but this enabled us to challenge our own thinking to create something that is both dramatic and surprising. Bottled at 45.5% abv, Genesis Limited Edition will be available to buy soon from The Macallan distillery and The Macallan Airport Boutiques. It is limited to 2,500 bottles and priced at £495.00 (US$665).  Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
