A very special 25yo Glenlivet bottled for the Royal Wedding in 1981 (Charles & Di in case you missed it). They pulled out all the stops for this one - a tremendous bottling with a generous dollop of sherry in the mix.
The second of Macallan's Masters of Photography series sensibly avoids the controversies of the first, with a special 20yo sherried whisky and a book of photos by Albert Watson on the journey of the sherry cask. The presentation box contains ten of these photos reproduced as special prints.

A 1966 vintage whisky from Macallan. This has been aged for 340years and bottled in the June 1996. Presented in a distinguished wooden presentation box, bottled by Signatory for their Singatory Vintage Rare Reserve range.
A 1966 vintage Macallan from independent bottler Signatory as part of the Rare Reserve series. Distilled on 16 June, it was aged in cask 4181 for 34 years before 204 bottles were yielded on 7 September 2000.
A special and very rare bottling of The Glenlivet, bottled under the auspices of being for the company chairman. Distilled in 1963, bottled 21 years late and presented in wooden box with a script label.
An incredible collectors bottling from Macallan, the third in a range of royal bottlings, with only 1953 sets produced. This set celebrates Queen Elizabeth II's coronation in 1953, 60 years before the release, and comprises two sherry cask matured whiskies - one from American oak, one from Spanish.
