Macallan 25 Year Old Pointers Ceramic Miniature / Eurostar

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 a 25 year old single malt from 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 25th anniversary of the Eurostar.

The Eurostar is a rail service that is famous for using the Channel Tunnel which was opened in 1994. It is a 31-mile tunnel which runs underneath the British/French channel and is seen as one of the greatest engineering achievements of all time. 

One of 25 produced.
