Macallan The Flask 75cl / US Exclusive

It may be hard to imagine today, but for much of the 20th century, Macallan was primarily a constituent malt in blends. It was not until the 1980s downturn in the market that the distillery decided to focus on its single malt brand. Fortuitously, this coincided with the crest of a wave of enthusiasm for the high quality releases that the distillery had licensed to Campbell, Hope & King and Gordon & MacPhail in the 1960s and 1970s. These remain some of the most collectible on the market. While global single malt sales volume is still lead by Speyside neighbours, Glenfiddich and Glenlivet, Macallan is easily the most sought after. So much so in fact, that they had to open a brand new distillery in 2018, a subterranean architectural masterpiece within the Easter Elchies estate, boasting 36 copper pot stills.  

The Flask  saw Macallan team up with super cool sunglasses designers, Oakley, for this special release. If you've seen the shades, you know what to expect form this high concept design.

The flask is made from 'food-grade' steel, then wrapped in a carbon fiber composite and “treated to an intensive passivation and electro-polishing procedure to ensure perfection.” It is then clad in “black anodized 5-axis machined aerospace grade aluminum.

The whisky itself is a 22 year old, aged in, unusually, ex-Sherry American oak barrels.

Although the physical flask was available in both the US and UK market, the 400 bottles were a US exclusive.
