Global Scottish whisky brand The Macallan has partnered with Sotherby’s to auction a limited edition bottle from The Macallan’s recent release of Distil Your World New York.
Created to capture the essence of one of the most iconic cities in the world, Distil Your World New York Single Cask Edition includes a striking blue presentation box featuring an engraved aerial map of New York, a booklet about the bottle and Distil Your World New York series that is signed by the talent featured in the Distil Your World New York documentary that aired with the release of the original bottle, and a dining experience at El Celler de Can Roca for the lucky collector and three guests.
The auction offers collectors the only, rare opportunity to acquire one of two bottles created of this limited edition whisky, as the second bottle will be kept in The Macallan archive.Estimated at $30,000 – $80,000, the extraordinary multi-component lot welcomes bids until Friday, February 10th.
“We are delighted to continue our long association of partnering with Sotheby’s to present very special releases that raise funds for charitable organizations around the world,” said Geoff Kirk, Channel Director Secondary Market at The Macallan.
“The Macallan Distil Your World New York Single Cask Edition bottle pays homage to one of the world’s most iconic cities, with proceeds benefiting New York City artists through the ChaShaMa charity. This unique auction, of one of two bottles created and an exclusive dinner with the Roca brothers at their world-renowned restaurant, will appeal to whisky enthusiasts, collectors, and philanthropists alike.”
Distil Your World New York Single Cask Edition is a single-cask whisky from a European Oak Sherry Puncheon from 2002. This limited edition bottle delivers a quintessential New York flavour note of chocolate-covered peanuts, along with a new taste of sweet candy and a hint of cherry blossom.
“It is always a huge event in the world of collectible whisky when Sotheby’s partners with The Macallan to release an exclusive whisky,” said Jonny Fowle, Sotheby’s Head of Whisky & Spirits, North America and EMEA
“Owning a unique bottle is the ultimate goal for whisky collectors, and this is the only opportunity for the world’s most dedicated collector to obtain an elevated single-cask, high strength version of the venerable Distil Your World New York.”
All proceeds from the sale will benefit ChaShaMa, a non-profit arts organization based in New York City that nurtures artists by transforming unused real estate into affordable work and presentation spaces.
