The Macallan has unveiled The Macallan M Collection, a range of limited release single malt whiskies which celebrates the brand’s Six Pillars.
The liquid is housed in decanters created in collaboration with creative director, Fabien Baron, and French crystal maker Lalique. The decanters are presented in outer packaging also denoting the Six Pillars and sustainably sourced in Scotland.
The Six Pillars are the foundation stones that account for The Macallan’s whiskies and comprise Natural Color, Mastery, Curiously Small Spirit Stills, The Estate, Exceptional Oak Casks and Sherry Seasoning. The Macallan M Collection features an array of colors embodying these attributes and reflecting the emotions that drive the brand.
The first three expressions of the series are the 2022 editions of the previously released M and M Black and the new M Copper, which pays tribute to the copper stills utilized by The Macallan since it was founded in 1824. The limited series bottles will begin to roll out in both domestic and travel retail markets including The Macallan Estate, The Macallan Airport Boutiques, select luxury hotels, bars and premium retailers.

Silvio Denz, Chairman and CEO of Lalique, said: “It is an honor to work with The Macallan – our long-standing partner for 16 years – to realize this exquisite collection and showcase our shared sense of mastery, craftsmanship and heritage. The decanters are completely unique in the world of decanters, very difficult to produce because of their shape and Lalique’s masters of crystal have relished applying their most complex skills to bring Fabien Baron’s creative vision to life.”
Jaume Ferras, Global Creative Director for The Macallan, said: “Our Six Pillars foundation stones embody all that is unique to The Macallan, together underpinning the renowned quality and rich character of our whisky and The Macallan M Collection tells the story of these unique attributes. We are dedicated to uncompromised excellence, and proud to collaborate with Fabien Baron and Lalique to bring these extraordinary expressions to life, and with Nick Knight to create a dramatic visual world for the collection.”
