The penultimate fifth decanter in The Macallan in Lalique Six Pillars Collection, The Spiritual Home features a 62-year-old The Macallan single malt whisky, the second oldest whisky ever released by the distillery, which is bottled in an individually numbered crystal container created by Lalique.

“The Six Pillars of The Macallan are the inspiration behind this wonderful collection; they comprise those elements which combine to give our exceptional single malt whisky its supreme quality and distinctive character,” said David Cox director of fine and rare whiskies for The Macallan.

“This is the penultimate decanter on an inspirational journey to the heart of The Macallan.”

Said to be inspired by The Macallan’s “spiritual home”, highland manor Easter Elchies House, the latest bottling was originally aged in American oak Sherry casks in 1950.

Cox continued: “The Six Pillars has inspired interest from connoisseurs and collectors since its inception in 2005, representing a marriage of the finest and rarest Macallan single malt whisky and bespoke designed decanters, interpreting the Six Pillars, from the master crystal craftsmen at Lalique.”

Only 400 decanters of The Macallan’s Spiritual Home are now available at specialist UK whisky retailers at an RRP of £16,000.

Earlier this year, The Macallan launched The Macallan M also in collaboration with Lalique, the “pinnacle” bottling in its 1824 series.
