THE MACALLAN REVEALS A NEW EDITION OF THE HARMONY COLLECTION IN COLLABORATION WITH STELLA AND MARY MCCARTNEY
The Macallan has announced a collaboration with Stella and Mary McCartney, united by curiosity, respect and admiration for the natural world. Stella and Mary have partnered with The Macallan on the creation of the third edition of The Harmony Collection – the limited annual release series which shines a spotlight on the brand’s inherent curiosity and innovative and creative mindset. The third release in The Harmony Collection celebrates the lands of Scotland that connect all those who have stood upon them for generations. The third instalment in the annual release series includes two distinctive expressions: The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow and Green Meadow, inspired by The McCartney sisters’ love of Scotland which stems from their memories in the Scottish countryside.
To mark this deep connection with the land, the presentation boxes and bottle labels have been made using discarded meadow cuttings embracing the re-use of natural materials to create beauty from resources at the end of their lives. The packaging of each release features photography of The Macallan Estate captured by Mary McCartney. The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team has taken inspiration from natural Scottish grasslands to create two distinctive, limited-edition whiskies, using a combination of sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks.
Steven Bremner, Whisky Maker said: “There is so much to discover with The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow. It is a single malt redolent of warm meadows and mature barley fields, with a rich, citrus scented finish. The 100% natural summer evening colour derived from our exceptional sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks reflects the richness of the flavour which awaits. On the nose fresh citrus fruits and honeysuckle are complemented by hints of vanilla, coconut and ripe barley fields. On tasting, notes of oak, lemon, melon are prominent, accompanied by flavours of classic scone and almond with green tea, before giving way to a rich and sweet long finish.”
The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow and Green Meadow will be available from November 2023 at a RRSP of £160. The unique partnership will also focus on a Collection of lifestyle pieces.
A first for Stella and Mary, the partnership with The Macallan marks a creative union of the McCartney sisters. This debut joint venture combines their creative talents in a collaboration which enables them to celebrate their memories of Scotland.
TOGETHER: A Collection for The Macallan by Stella and Mary McCartney introduces a limited-edition Collection of 11 lifestyle pieces designed by the sisters and skilfully realised by master artisans and craftspeople. The Collection showcases a curated selection of bespoke pieces including handmade glassware in vibrant shades that are coloured using natural minerals, an ombre ceramic flask encased in an apple leather alternative sleeve, a pair of brass ice stamps with meticulously hand-painted ceramic handles using a green and amber ombre colour blend and a brass napkin weight in the shape of an acorn, as a tribute to the exceptional oak casks which mature The Macallan whisky. Stella and Mary’s logo makes its debut across the full range, alongside The Macallan logo. TOGETHER is exclusively sold as a complete set and will be available in limited numbers from 11 October 2023.
