Macallan Distil Your World London 

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.

This limited-edition release has been produced by Macallan Whisky Maker Steven Bremner alongside the Roca brothers of the world-famous restaurant El Celler de Can Roca of Girona, Spain. The restaurant opened in 1986 and since then has twice been named best restaurant in the world by Restaurant magazine. Altho the Roca brothers have never felt the need to open more restaurants in different locations, they do occasionally take their cuisine on tour via temporary "pop-ups". Some of these locations have included the city of London to which this release is dedicated to.

The whisky has been aged in six first-fill European oak Oloroso seasoned casks and bottled at cask strength. The bottle is presented in a stunning display case which features a 3D triangular design and a hidden compartment containing a book which details the release.

One of 2,000 bottles which originally went on sale in Autumn 2020.
