Master of Photography Magnum Edition Single Malt Scotch Whisky
This collaboration with Magnum Photos is the highly anticipated seventh limited edition in The Macallan Masters of Photography series. Created in collaboration with Magnum Photos to celebrate the opening of the new distillery, the glamorous red box – one of only 2,000 released worldwide – contains:
- One 700ml bottle of unique whisky engraved with the Macallan and Magnum Photos logos and the names of the six photographers.
- Six signed 11 x 14” prints of the new Macallan distillery taken by six of the world’s greatest photographers throughout the building project.
- One exclusive book of photography.
Following the devastation of World War II, a group of pioneering photographers – Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, George Rodger, David Seymour, Maria Eisner, William Vandivert and his wife Rita – created the now legendary Magnum Photos agency. This international cooperative owned by its photographer members revolutionised the image game, and it continues in that vein today. To date, it has had almost 130 members – the list reading like a who’s who of photography.
Following in the footsteps of the likes of Steven Klein, Rankin, Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz, The Macallan asked the Magnum Photos to capture their iconic new £140 million distillery from the laying of its foundations to its eventual completion. Magnum Photos sent six of their world renowned photographers – Steve McCurry, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Mark Power, Gueorgui Pinkhassov and Alec Soth – to get snapping. The results are truly beautiful.
The whisky itself was crafted by Sarah Burgess, using eight vastly different casks of Macallan’s rarest malts. These included a European red wine cask, a classic refill Speyside cask, a first-fill American barrel and one very old cask. Inspired by the work of the six photographers, The Macallan’s Whisky Maker has created a dram that bristles with spiced ginger biscuits, black cherry, apple tarte tatin, Werther’s Originals, tangerine and peat smoke. It’s as much a work of art and a slice of history as the photographs that accompany it and the new distillery itself.
