The Macallan has recently unveiled its third edition of The Harmony Collection, marking a groundbreaking collaboration with the creative powerhouse, Stella and Mary McCartney. This partnership not only signifies a creative union between the McCartney sisters but also pays homage to their deep-seated love for Scotland and its natural beauty.
Stella and Mary McCartney’s emotional connection with Scotland has deep roots, spanning decades. For them, Scotland is more than just a place; it’s a source of comfort, nostalgia, and a cherished homecoming. Memories of their Scottish residence on the west coast and experiences at The Macallan Estate have inspired a collaboration that aims to transport consumers to the heart of Scotland’s natural wonders.
The limited annual release series, Amber Meadow and Green Meadow, represents The Macallan’s inherent curiosity and creative mindset. Crafted in collaboration with Stella and Mary, these distinctive expressions draw inspiration from the McCartney sisters’ love for the Scottish countryside, celebrating the lands that connect generations.
The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team employed a blend of sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks, mirroring the natural Scottish grasslands. Amber Meadow, a single malt with a rich, citrus-scented finish, reflects the warmth of meadows and mature barley fields. The nose is greeted with fresh citrus fruits and honeysuckle, leading to a palate of oak, lemon, melon, and a sweet, lingering finish.
Mary McCartney’s photography of The Macallan Estate graces the packaging, while presentation boxes and labels incorporate discarded meadow cuttings, emphasizing the reuse of natural materials. This choice underlines the McCartney sisters’ commitment to sustainability and their profound connection with the land.
Beyond whisky, the collaboration extends into lifestyle pieces with TOGETHER, a limited-edition collection featuring 11 meticulously crafted items. From vibrant glassware to a ceramic flask encased in apple leather, each piece is inspired by nature and skillfully realized by master artisans. The collection’s colors represent The Macallan Estate, the whisky’s natural hue, and the brand’s tradition and craftsmanship.
This December, The Macallan invites consumers to The Harmony Hideaway, offering a sensory journey into the colors, sounds, and essence of Scotland. Guests can savor the new Harmony expression and delve into the collection’s ethos through bespoke lounge experiences.
TOGETHER is exclusively available as a complete set, launching globally on October 11, 2023. Priced at $210, The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow will be accessible from October 2023, with Green Meadow available in airports globally for $185. US availability is set for early December 2023, allowing enthusiasts to embrace the harmonious fusion of nature and craftsmanship.
