Harmony, a timeless pursuit woven into the very fabric of human existence, is the elusive symphony of balance and unity that resides within our souls. It also represents the delicate ebb and flow between man and nature, inextricably linked by man’s actions that are at times more visible and impactful than others.
For The Macallan, that exists in The Harmony Collection—driven by curiosity and fuelled by innovation in the world of sustainable packaging. The third and latest edition of The Harmony Collection finds itself
back in familiar verdant Scottish territories after traversing the globe to Spain and Ethiopia—exploring the worlds of cacao and coffee respectively in the collection’s first two editions. The homecoming is made even more special as The Macallan roped in the talents of the McCartney sisters, Stella and Mary, for a collaboration united by curiosity, respect and admiration for the natural world.
With a deep-rooted connection with nature stretching close to two centuries, The Macallan distils its profound respect and love as a celebration of Scotland’s lands in the third release in The Harmony Collection. It is further enriched by the McCartney sisters’ love and memories of the Scottish countryside, captured by the headlining The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow expression.
Inspired by the McCartney sisters’ summer getaways at their family’s farm in the Scottish countryside, the sherry-seasoned oak and bourbon cask matured spirit evokes amber hues of warm meadows and mature barley fields during a summer evening’s golden hour. “On the nose, fresh citrus fruits and honeysuckle are complemented by hints of vanilla, coconut and ripe barley fields,” notes The Macallan whisky maker Steven Bremner. “Notes of oak, lemon, and melon are prominent when sipped, accompanied by flavours of classic scone and almond with green tea, before giving way to a rich and sweet long finish.”
As a mark of respect to the profound connection to the Scottish lands, the presentation boxes and bottle labels have been artfully crafted from repurposed meadow cuttings, embodying The Macallan’s commitment to using nature’s discarded resources to fashion beauty from materials in their twilight years. Each box features a photograph of The Macallan Estate captured by Mary McCartney as a finishing touch to this limited edition collection.
