Macallan celebrates 200th anniversary with Cirque du Soleil experience

In celebration of its 200th anniversary, the Macallan has collaborated with Cirque du Soleil to produce a bespoke experience: Cirque du Soleil SPIRIT.
The event will run from 9–31 May 2024, and will be hosted at Macallan’s distillery in Speyside, Scotland.  
Cirque du Soleil SPIRIT is described as a sensory experience that will take visitors on “a journey through taste, smell, sounds, and feelings.” It will follow Ayla, a colourist and daughter of a master whisky maker, and Davonna, spiritual guardian of the Scottish Highlands. The performance’s story is inspired by Scottish folklore and the country’s rich whisky heritage, with a theme of reconnecting with nature.
Jaume Ferràs, creative director at the Macallan, described the collaboration as: “Bridging the gap between the art of whisky making and the spectacle of performing arts, creating an unforgettable experience that is deeply rooted in the nature that surrounds us at the Macallan, our rich history, and our bold vision for the future. 
“We look forward to welcoming guests from all over the world to our Estate, offering them the opportunity to take in an exclusive experience and a bespoke whisky tasting surrounded by nature, all unique to the Macallan.”
