Macallan 50 Year Old Lalique - Six Pillars Collection 75cl
Lot number: 106-04862
This lot failed to meet its reserve.
The Macallan distillery was founded in 1824 by Alexander Reid, a barley farmer and school teacher. Now owned by the Edrington Group, The Macallan prides itself on its Six Pillars, which include its curiously small stills, very narrow 'cut' of new make spirit and exceptional cask management. It is the most sought after whisky for collectors, regularly setting records at auctions all round the world.
A new £140 million subterranean distillery and visitor centre on the Easter Elchies estate was opened to the public in the summer of 2018 and has since won several awards for its architectural quality; with its exciting features including glass walls of vintage whiskies, a circular pod of copper pot stills, and a Boutique reflecting those in Dubai and Heathrow airports.
Released in 2005 and limited to only 470 individually numbered decanters worldwide, the first decanter in the Lalique Six Pillars Collection contains an alluring 50 Years Old Macallan single malt. Taking their inspiration from the exceptional oak casks in which The Macallan is matured, the master craftsmen of Lalique created a decanter which unites intricately etched details that represent our mastery of wood with a realisation of the art nouveau style that is synonymous with Lalique.
Macallan's monumental Six Pillars Collection has become one of the most sought after series in the whisky world. A collaboration between the distillery and French crystal makers, Lalique, this first "Pillar" debuted in 2005 celebrating the "exceptional oak casks" on which Macallan has built its reputation.
