The Macallan Sir Peter Blake Single Malt Scotch Whisky (700ml)
A limited edition Macallan made in collaboration with world famous British pop artist, Sir Peter Blake, perhaps best remembered for designing the cover for the Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. It's the third time in four decades the iconic artist has partnered with Macallan, beginning in 1986 when Sir Peter Blake designed the labels for a set of twelve 1926 60-year-olds. This release commemorates Blake’s visit to The Macallan Estate and tells the story of some of the colourful characters from the distillery’s past and present with a label digitally designed by Sir Peter himself. Taking inspiration from Sir Peter, the presentation box has been created with colours that inspired his art – blue and green with natural textures. The box houses the bottle, a certificate detailing the history and heritage on which the art was based, and artwork printed on a scroll, representing anecdotes from the wider collection, portrayed in Sir Peter Blake’s distinct style. A tracing paper overlay provides information on each character from The Macallan’s history that Sir Peter chose to include. Lead Whisky Maker, Sarah Burgess was inspired by Blake’s character to create a style with surprising notes of treacle and black pepper. 47.7% Alc./Vol.
