This is the fifth bottling in what seems an annual limited release.
Edition No.5 is a collaboration with the Pantone Colour Institute, who has designed the striking purple box to compliment the hue of this marriage of exclusively American casks.
"Like the rainbow's most complex colour, purple naturally felt like the ideal shade to highlight the equally complex process involved in The Macallan's whisky-making. This new vibrant purple, developed especially for Edition No.5 brings to life the exquisite combination of distinctive natural hues found in this whisky."
The liquid has been matured in the following types of cask:
First fill bourbon barrels - Pantone 7563 C
