Bentley Motors Partners With The Macallan For The Macallan Horizon
If you ever wondered what luxury motors and scotch whisky have in common, feast your eyes on The Macallan Horizon.
A collaboration between Bentley Motors and The Macallan, the new limited edition single malt whisky serves as a prototype that combines each brand’s respective expertise. Incorporating purpose, innovation, craftsmanship and beauty, the whisky adopts a unique form that defies the traditional vertical aesthetic of a bottle by reflecting the horizontal trajectory of the automotive.
This visionary design also features a glass bottle with an extraordinary 180-degree twist, representing the mastery of space and time achieved by The Macallan and Bentley Motors in creating the prototype, which has no standing base.
The remarkable vision and design of bottle fuses traditional craftsmanship and innovative materials using cutting edge technology. The prototype of The Macallan Horizon features an exclusive, horizontal design made from six unique upcycled, repurposed or ethically sourced materials which are integral to The Macallan and Bentley Motors.
Among them are recycled copper from the disused curiously small spirit stills which were located within The Macallan’s former Distillery, aluminium recovered from the Bentley Motors manufacturing process; recycled wood; recyclable glass and carbon neutral leather, locally sourced, and also used in the recently unveiled Bentley Mulliner grand tourer.
The final component is the very special single malt whisky being created for The Macallan Horizon. The Macallan Master Whisky Maker Kirsteen Campbell developed the flavour profile for the whisky following a visit to Bentley Motors in Crewe, where she observed first hand their shared passion for creativity, craftsmanship and innovation.
Information regarding pricing and availability of The Macallan Horizon single malt whisky will be shared closer to its release in summer 2023.
