About The Macallan Masters of Photography: Magnum Edition

The Macallan Masters of Photography: Magnum Edition is the seventh limited edition release in the Masters of Photography series, celebrating the opening of the new Macallan distillery and visitor experience.. For each release, Macallan partners with some of the greatest photographers working today. A special Macallan is created to accompany limited edition prints of photos taken by the celebrity artists in a handsome volume. This year’s release include images captured by six photo artists from the Magnum Photos cooperative of the new Macallan Distillery and visitor center, taken by world renowned Magnum photographers - Steve McCurry, Martin Parr, Paolo Pellegrin, Mark Power, Gueorgui Pinkhassov and Alec Soth.

But this is not "just" a pretty box with photos. The single malt in this edition is a combination of eight rare Macallan casks — including unique seasons casks, an ex-wine barrel, an ex-bourbon barrel, and some classic sherry casks of various ages and proofs. The result is smooth and complex inspiring a desire to savor slowly.

Founded in 1824, The Macallan is one of the "Big 3" single malts in Scotland — the other two are Glenfiddich and Glenlivet. Fortunately, The Macallan has achieved this scale without sacrificing quality. A change in UK labeling laws aced them out of their "Speyside" designation. But just because the British Parliament gerrymandered the "official" boundaries doesn’t mean whiskey-lovers have to pay any attention. The Macallan single malts are famous for their classic Speyside style and the heavily sherried influence of their core rage.

The Macallan has been creating single malt whisky for so long at such a high volume and such a high level that they have what sports teams call a very "deep bench." Their incredible inventory of rare, aging single malt gives them the ability to pinpoint flavors and special editions for the refined whisky palate that satisfy a huge, global following. Their achievements are numerous, including setting the record price ever paid at auction for a single bottle of scotch at auction this year.

About Scotch

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)

Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
