Planet-saving whisky, you say? The Macallan’s on it.
Doubling down on its steadfast commitment to maintaining its intimate proximity to nature – a pledge that has followed every step of the 200-year-old institution’s ongoing journey – the brand has lifted the shroud on The Macallan Harmony Collection Fine Cacao, a limited-run edition of single malts boasting exquisite chocolate notes housed in sustainable packaging.
The Fine Cacao Edition is a triumph of forward-thinking ingenuity as well as a testament to the merits of maintaining the sanctity of tradition. From its outer shell to the essence contained therein, it marks an elevation of The Macallan’s legacy to evermore esteemed vistas.
Affirming that sustainability is more than a mere cosmetic concern to the brand, The Macallan Whisky Maker Polly Logan visited Girona, Spain, and met with the globally esteemed pastry chef Jordi Roca – of El Celler de Can Roca fame – and master chocolatier Damian Allsop and channelled their influence into her search for spellbinding chocolate notes amid The Macallan Estate’s sherry-seasoned oak casks. The resulting single malts are composed of a bewitching combination of European and American oak casks, which promise an utterly divine payload that goes down superbly with upper-echelon chocolate.
The nature-honouring sophistication and refinement of the newly conceived blend is also reflected in its fully recyclable box, which, made from cast-off husks from cacao pods, boldly and beautifully underlines The Macallan’s drive to minimise waste and exert less stress on Mother Earth.
Making its global debut in Singapore, the Fine Cacao Edition will be available at the travel retail exclusive pop-up at Changi Airport Terminal 3 Departure Hall from 1 May 2022. The tripartite link-up of The Macallan, Changi Airport Group and Lotte Duty Free is a first-ever presentation that features interactive Augmented Reality technology within the context of a retail space specially designed with re-purposed materials.
Take a stand for your planet and savour the next frontier of whisky now.
The Harmony Collection Fine Cacao retails at SGD 215 at Singapore Changi Airport Lotte Duty Free. The Macallan Harmony Collection Fine Cacao pop-up will run from 1st May to 30th June 2022.
