Part of the Annie Leibowitz collection in Macallan's Masters of Photography series, this 1996 vintage whisky was matured in an American Oak butt and is paired with a photograph of New York's iconic skyline, appropriately called 'The Skyline'.
A old bottling of Macallan whisky, bottled when they were still calling their whisky by the name Macallan-Glenlivet (something that was quite popular amongst distillers some years ago). This whisky was distilled in 1949 and bottled at 24 years of age in the mid-1970s.

An old bottling of Macallan Special Reserve. This is a very rare example of Macallan releasing whiskies without an age statement or vintage, well up until the release of the recent 1824 series in any case.
A very rare Macallan - just 120 bottles of this were produced in 1996 for guests at an event to mark the retirement of Peter Nicol from the Macallan distillery after 43 years service. The malts used were chosen by Mr Nicol himself.
A 1995 vintage Macallan selected as part of the Masters of Photography series, celebrating the work of Annie Leibowitz. This was matured in a sherry hogshead and features a photograph of actor & director Kevin McKidd entitled 'The Library'.
