Seriously? Who needs to be introduced?
Well, I won’t bother you with dry considerations such as the production capacity of 8,000,000 litres, making it the 2nd or 3rd production capacity in Scotland (oups, I just did!).
I would prefer to say that Macallan has imposed whisky among auction records for alcohol which were almost exclusively held by wines.
I would prefer to speak of the fortunate marketing and clear-sightedness for elegance that has lead to the collaboration with Lalique, a reference in the French luxury industry for glass-making and the superb and astonishing decanters born of it.
Not convinced? Ok, go and tell James Bond that his favorite whisky is not worth a bid!
Watch out, it is almost Wine o’clock!
“Drinking Sir?” Wine o’clock
