This distinctive and rare single malt was carefully crafted by The Macallan Lead Whisky Maker, Sarah Burgess. Distilled in 1960 and bottled in 2021, it was selected for its exceptional flavour and character.
A sublime whisky, it is a celebration of the life and legacy of Captain John Grant. The exquisite, handcrafted crystal decanter that encases this distinguished and rare expression was created by our long-standing collaborator, master French crystal maker Lalique. The decanter is concealed within an extraodinary almanac book made by traditional bookmaking company Sherpherds Bookbinders, featuring beautiful illustration by British artist and illustrator, Andrew Davidson. Just 350 decanters were produced.
