Adding the wow factor to whisky: The Macallan reveals new Boutique Collection


Whisky collectors around the world will be putting Taiwan at the top of their destination list now The Macallan has launched a collection that is only available at Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport.

The Boutique Collection is drawn from a select number of maturing casks reserved for guests visiting Easter Elchies House – better known as the spiritual home of The Macallan.

Bottled at 57% abv and chestnut in colour, The Macallan Boutique Collection is described as a full-flavoured, rich and smooth single malt whisky. It delivers a burst of spices and fruit with subtle notes of charred oak on the finish. The 700ml bottle label features a sketch of Easter Elchies House and a capsule strip that allows personal message for the recipient.

Ever Rich recently opened the first ever Macallan Boutique at Taoyuan Airport, a big statement from the Edrington-owned brand about the importance of the travel channel. The new line is the first of a series of travel-only exclusive products that will appear at the store.

As reviewed last year by The Moodie Davitt Report, the team behind PretAirporter, The Macallan Boutique brings to life the brand’s heritage through a range of experiences. Connoisseurs and newcomers alike can immerse themselves in the world of Scotch, learning about cask-making, bottling and the ingredients that give The Macallan its flavour. The Macallan Boutique Collection also forms part of the largest range of The Macallan anywhere in duty free.

PretAirporter.com is the new home of reviews and insights on products and offers available exclusively to global travel shoppers. Look out for many more travel-exclusive drinks launches in the months ahead.
