Macallan Edition No. 5
The Macallan Edition No. 5 is our very own homage to the diversity and complexity of natural colour. A coming together of whisky making mastery, colour expertise and insight. This single malt celebrates both The Macallan’s commitment to natural colour and the intricate whisky making process, in partnership with masters at the Pantone Color Institute to create a unique shade of purple that features on the packaging.
Whisky maker Sarah Burgess blended the fifth release in Macallan’s Edition series. And consists entirely of liquid matured in American oak; a combination of first-fill bourbon casks and first-fill and refill sherry casks.
We are surrounded by colour; it shapes our everyday lives. Whether from defining moods, shaping perceptions, distracting thoughts and changing behaviour, it is a powerful force that can communicate without words.
