Concept Number 1: 40%, 70cl: In 2018, Macallan released the first in their Concept series; a limited annual release celebrating bold visionaries who dare to think beyond traditional boundaries. This series joins the Rare Cask and Quest collections as a travel retail exclusive.
Number 1 is inspired by surrealist art - with the label depicting the Macallan Six Pillars in the style of surrealism - which is apparently echoed through the innovation of their slightly different maturation process in the production of this release.
Cask Type: Sherry Oak Casks followed by an equal time in Ex-Bourbon Casks
Concept Number 2: 40%, 70cl. This is the second bottle in the series and was unveiled at the TFWA World Exhibition & Conference in Cannes, France. The series is rumoured to be of three parts after maturing the spirit in sherry and being moved into ex-bourbon casks.
Concept Number 2 is a creation by Macallan whisky maker Steven Bremner. It revolves around his two great passions, Whisky and Music.
Concept Number 3: 40.8% ABV, 70cl
This wonderfully designed Macallan is the 3rd and final release in the Concept series. This edition brings together whisky and design through their collaboration with David Carson, a revolutionary graphic designer. The whisky itself was matured in fresh fill sherry butts and ex-bourbon barrels. Bottled at 40.8% ABV, the Macallan Concept No.3 is a fitting end to the creative series.
