Macallan Archival Series Folio 2​

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 was 2017 a limited release from Macallan that was only available from the distillery.  The distillery staff confirmed that the liquid is 12 years old, sherry cask matured and limited 2000 bottles. Although none of these details are stated on the packaging. 

The second in a range of whiskies recreating the old advertising styles of Macallan, the front image is a watercolour image done by Artist Sara Midda, who's works are synonymous with Macallan of the 1990s and early 2000s.

Boxed with a book and presented in a beautifully designed book-shaped tin.
