The Macallan has become James Bond’s whisky of choice in recent years, reflecting his appreciation for the finer things in life. The brands have shared many moments together on screen, including Skyfall when Bond drinks The Macallan Fine & Rare 1962 as an ode to the 50th anniversary. Now comes the 'Decade Series', celebrating Bond's 60th anniversary, expressed through six unique releases. The distinctive packaging brings to life the creative development of the films in a behind the scenes exploration of the Bond archives. It aims at bringing to life the innovations and inventions of James Bond across the years, and the packaging has been colour washed with one of the trending colours of the decade it represents. Decade VI explores the Bond innovations and archives of the 2010s. The pack design features a Day of The Dead poster from Spectre (2015) and a Skyfall Lodge illustration from Skyfall (2012). The Day of the Dead poster calls back to the action packed opening sequence in Spectre. Instead of filming Mexico’s popular festival, the production created their own version, taking over Zocalo Square with over 1,500 extras. In 2012 Skyfall brought the audience back to James Bond’s childhood home, but also tragically destroyed it. Daniel Craig’s performances endeared further notes of domesticity, deep love and family. Making the character more relatable than ever, Craig reveals a vulnerable humanity at Bond’s core, without compromising any trademark resolve or physical capability. The packaging design features childhood home Skyfall Lodge in Skyfall (2012), and a Day of the Dead poster from Spectre (2015).

The whisky itself was created by Master Whisky Maker, Kirsteen Campbell to reflect the character of Bond: A force of nature defined by his Scottish heritage. Like James Bond, the whisky exudes a sense of style and maturity which has evolved over the years and is consistent within all six bottles. 43.7% Alc./Vol.

Notes from Macallan... Swiss gold in colour. The nose is fresh and vibrant notes of lemon and lime, a sprinkle of sherbet, leading into a sweet vanilla and coconut, with a hint of dried fig and raisin. On the palate flavours of orange zest and fizzy sherbet with a lemon freshness, gentle oak and subtle ginger spice, leading into a deep dark chocolate, figs and baked apple tart with a honey drizzle. The finish is sweet and long with complexed layers.
