Macallan Pointers Ceramic Miniature / V.E. Day
Pointers of London & Edinburgh was a ceramic manufacturer that ran from September 1973 to October 2014. They are best known for producing different decanters and miniatures that celebrate different themes. These normally include the British Royal Family and historical events.
The whisky inside the ceramic miniature is an unspecified Macallan.
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 particular miniature celebrates the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day
V.E. Day (Victory in Europe Day) took place on Tuesday, 8 May 1945 and marked the surrendering of the Nazis bringing the European part of World War II to an end. The overall global conflict was concluded in September 1945 after the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan.
