Macallan 62 Year Old Lalique Decanter / The Spiritual Home
There are very few whiskies as elegant and impressive as this.
The decanter was designed by Marc Larminaux from Lalique and captured the legacy of Rene Lalique and Easter Elchies House, The Spritual Home of Macallan. The side of this amazing bottle displays the initial JEG as displayed on the original date stone shown on Easter Elchies House, the initals of Captain John Grant who oversaw the building of the manor house in the late 1700s. Other aspects of Easter Elchies House are depicted in the decanter such as the 'crow-steps' interpreted in the neck of the decanter and of course the stopper represents the chimneys.
American oak casks, seasoned with sherry were chosen and filled in November 1950. After 62 years of maturation, only 400 decanters of this incredibly rare Macallan were ever produced.
The oldest officially bottled Macallan is the 64 year old Macallan Lalique 'Cire Perdue' which achieved a record price at auction in 2010 at $460,000.
Please note that there very faint scuff marks (too faint for photos) on the front of the box.
