The Macallan has unveiled its sixth and final Edition Series whisky, which celebrates the Speyside distillery’s natural surroundings.
The new Macallan Edition No.6 completes the annual range, which began in 2015, using the distillery’s land and river as inspiration.
“A day on the River Spey is supremely special,” said Mitchell. “You feel that you are escaping from everything and truly connecting with nature and with our distillery completing this stunning landscape, there is no other place in the world capable of drawing so many wonders together.
“We are proud custodians of our one-and-three-quarter mile stretch of the River Spey and advocate for the sustainability of the wildlife in and around it and so all fishing at The Macallan is catch and release.”
The Macallan’s whisky maker Steven Bremner created the new 48.6% expression by choosing five cask styles that represent stories related to the river and its natural landscape.
The resulting liquid offers aromas of “fresh fruits, nutmeg and toffee merged with oak and flavours of ripe plum, vibrant sweet oranges and cinnamon, developing into spicy fresh fruits and creamy chocolate and toasted oats at the finish”.
