The Macallan unveils M

In a collaboration between three masters of their crafts, The Macallan has unveiled a limited edition luxury decanter, M. 

Partnering with the French fashion magazine creative director Fabien Baron and crystal makers Lalique, The Macallan has created a beautifully designed and crafted crystal decanter for Macallan single malt whisky.

Just 1,750 crystal decanters of M, each engraved with an individual number, will be available worldwide.

David Cox director of fine and rare at 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.

Lalique has hand crafted the decanter in the highest grade of crystal uniting 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.”

M is 44.7% abv and has an RRP of  £3,000.
