The Macallan Boutique @ 1855, recently launched at Marine One, is an impressive concentration of the brand's prized spirits. It also means that it's now easier to get your hands on some hard-to-find expressions.
The 500sqft and first-of-its-kind boutique boasts a wood-carved ceiling that is reminiscent of its massive distillery in Scotland. Coral Gill, Regional Brand Director of Asia Pacific and Global Travel Retail, refers to the boutique as a "hub of exploration, education, and experience".
The first thing you see when you step inside is the bar, which will soon be offering guided whisky tastings. These will include flight tastings of selected ranges, such as The Macallan 12YOs. Unfortunately, no confirmation of when these will be made available could be had at press time.
Further in is where you’ll find the current exhibition of The Masters of Photography series, where the collaborative efforts of The Macallan and renowned photographers such as Mario Testino and Annie Leibovitz are displayed.
Follow this path to the heart of the space, which is home to a treasure trove of exquisite whiskies. The Macallan 50 Years Old, one of its rarest and most unique expressions, is a fine example and is exclusively available here. There are only 200 bottles available worldwide.
Available too are limited edition releases such as The Macallan Edition No. 3, Classic Cut, 1824 Masters Series collection (Rare Cask, Reflexion, No. 6 and M), as well as the 12 Year Old age statements of Sherry Oak, Double Cask and Triple Cask Matured.
And if you can’t decide on which to choose, the interactive screens prove to be handy in finding the right whisky for you. You’ll be asked questions about your taste profile and serving style; from there, you’ll be given recommendations on which bottle to pick.
