Glasgow Whisky has launched the Munros Macallan 30 Years Old single malt. The new offering from the Scottish company is part of the Munros collection, and the first Whisky in a new super-premium range.
Distilled in January 1989, the Glasgow Whisky Munros Macallan 30 Years Old Whisky was matured for 30 years in an ex-Sherry cask. Bottled at its natural cask strength of 49.1% ABV, the whisky does not contain any additional colour and has received “minimal filtration.”
The Munros collection was created to honor Scottish mountains that stand more than 3,000 ft tall, known as the Munros.
“We are passionate about single malts and are excited to be adding a new premium level to our much-loved Munros single cask collection, starting with this superb Macallan 30 Years Old,” said Rory Taylor, Glasgow Whisky sales manager. “We intend to release a new Munros super-premium single malt each year going forwards.”
The Whisky has been bottled in a decanter created by Glencairn Crystal Studio. Produced from lead-free crystal, it features an engraving of a Scottish mountain range, which is magnified through the whisky to the front of the decanter. The decanter also features white and copper detailing, and the Munros mountain theme is continued on the copper stopper.
“Our task was to create an elegant decanter that allowed the whisky to do the talking, whilst celebrating the Munros, so we made this exceptional Macallan integral to the overall design with the mountain range emerging through the liquid,” explained Kenny Tweeddale, Glencairn new product development manager.
The Munros Macallan 30 Years Old is priced at more than RRP £5,000 (US$6,482) and just 133 decanters have been produced.
Back in June, The Glenfarclas revealed its 63 Year Old Pagoda Sapphire Reserve, completing the Glenfarclas Pagoda series. The offering comes in jewel encrusted Glencairn crystal decanters.
