The Macallan and Bentley Motors revealed the ground-breaking design of The Macallan Horizon – the limited edition single malt whisky. Created following extensive joint development between Bentley Motors and The Macallan, the prototype represents a joint initiative of building a sustainable future from the rich heritage of both brands. The Macallan Horizon also merges traditional craftsmanship, recycled materials and an exclusive horizontal design.
Celebrating The Macallan’s acclaimed Six Pillars – the foundation stones of the brand that account for its distinctive single malt whiskies – The Macallan Horizon includes six unique upcycled, repurposed, or ethically sourced materials that are essential to The Macallan and Bentley Motors. The unique design of the prototype vessel defies the traditional vertical aesthetic of a whisky bottle and reflects the horizontal trajectory of a car. It sits horizontally in a purpose-build cradle, and has no standing base.
A hand-made glass bottle features an extraordinary 180-degree twist. The design illustrates the mastery of space and time achieved by The Macallan and Bentley Motors in creating the prototype. The vessel is surrounded by an intricately twisted 3D structure crafted in a suite of beautiful, sustainable materials. The arms of the structure are crafted in:
- Recycled copper from the disused, curiously small spirit stills which were located within The Macallan’s former distillery
- Aluminium recovered from the production of the Continental GT, Flying Spur and Bentayga at Bentley’s home in Crewe, England
- Recycled wood from both brands
- The world’s lowest CO2 leather, locally-sourced in Scotland, and also used in the highly exclusive Bentley Mulliner Batur grand tourer
This innovative bottle will contain extraordinary single malt whisky. Crafted especially for the release, it will also tell its own story of recycling and sustainability.
