The Macallan M Collection launching in Travel Retail

The Macallan has announced the launch of The Macallan M Collection in travel retail, a range of three single malt whiskies said to celebrate the brand’s Six Pillars.

Having released earlier in the year, the collection will now be available through travel retail at The Macallan’s Airport Boutiques.

Jeremy Speirs, regional managing director at Edrington Global Travel Retail, commented: “The Macallan M Collection has long been a distinctive and highly collectible part of The Macallan’s prestige offer in travel retail. With the addition to the range of the stunning new M Copper, we are further underlining the collectability of The Macallan while shining a spotlight on our curiously small stills and the role they play in creating our iconic spirit.”

The first of the three is The Macallan M 2022 Release, produced using 100% natural ingredients and sherry seasoned oak casks. Bottled at 45% ABV, the expression is described as having aroma notes of sweet black cherry and demerara sugar, with herbal notes of liquorice and tea leaves on the palate. Its RRSP is £5000 for a 70cl decanter.

Second is The Macallan M Black 2022 Release has been created using black ended sherry seasoned oak casks holding peated spirit selected by the whisky mastery team. The producer has described its aroma as fresh apple and pear, with notes of candied oranges and charred peaches on the palate. The RRSP is £5,700 and has an ABV of 46%.

Finally, The Macallan M Copper 2022 Release is the most expensive of the three, with an RRSP of £6,250. Said to reflect the curiously small spirits, a defining feature in the brand’s distillation process, the expression is described as having aromas of sweet banana and pear, with notes of pear drops, caramelised banana and sherbet on the palate. It’s bottled at 42%, the weakest of the three.

The Six Pillars are described as the foundations of The Macallan’s whiskies, comprising of natural colour, mastery, curiously small spirit stills, the Estate, exceptional oak casks and sherry seasoning.

Jaume Ferras, global creative Director for The Macallan, said: “Our Six Pillars foundation stones embody all that is unique to The Macallan, together underpinning the renowned quality and rich character of our whisky. The Macallan M Collection tells the story of these unique attributes and our dedication to uncompromised excellence.”
