The Macallan reveals new The Harmony Collection in collaboration with Stella and Mary McCartney

The Macallan has announced the third edition of The Harmony Collection, a collaboration with Stella and Mary McCartney that celebrates the lands of Scotland.

A first for Stella and Mary, the partnership with The Macallan marks a creative union of the McCartney sisters. This debut joint venture combines their creative talents in a collaboration which enables them to celebrate their memories of Scotland.

The Harmony Collection is a limited annual release series, which shines a spotlight on the brand’s inherent curiosity and innovative and creative mindset.

The third instalment in the annual release series includes two distinctive expressions: The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow and Green Meadow, inspired by The McCartney sisters’ love of Scotland which stems from their memories in the Scottish countryside.

To mark this deep connection with the land, the presentation boxes and bottle labels have been made using discarded meadow cuttings embracing the re-use of natural materials to create beauty from resources at the end of their lives.

The packaging of each release features photography of The Macallan Estate captured by Mary McCartney. Stella and Mary’s logo also makes its debut across the full range, alongside The Macallan logo.

The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team has taken inspiration from natural Scottish grasslands to create the two distinctive, limited-edition whiskies, using a combination of sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks.

Steven Bremner, Whisky Maker said: “There is so much to discover with The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow. It is a single malt redolent of warm meadows and mature barley fields, with a rich, citrus scented finish.

“The 100% natural summer evening color derived from our exceptional sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks reflects the richness of the flavor which awaits. On the nose fresh citrus fruits and honeysuckle are complemented by hints of vanilla, coconut and ripe barley fields. On tasting, notes of oak, lemon, melon are prominent, accompanied by flavors of classic scone and almond with green tea, before giving way to a rich and sweet long finish.”

Jeremy Speirs, Edrington Regional Managing Director, Global Travel Retail commented: “The first two editions in The Macallan Harmony Collection have resonated strongly with travelers and we are confident that Green Meadow will build on this momentum. The partnership with Stella and Mary McCartney takes us into bold new territory and will appeal to a new group of travelers who admire the creativity and craftsmanship of these world-renowned fashion and photography icons.”

The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow will be available from October 2023 and Green Meadow will be available from February 2024. Both expressions have a RRSP of £160.

The Macallan Harmony Collection Green Meadow is the third global travel retail edition and will be available in The Macallan Airport Boutiques and key airports around the world and China Hainan Island duty free shops.

The unique partnership will also focus on a collection of lifestyle pieces. TOGETHER: A Collection for The Macallan by Stella and Mary McCartney introduces a limited-edition Collection of 11 lifestyle pieces designed by the sisters and skillfully realized by master artisans and craftspeople.

The Collection showcases a curated selection of bespoke pieces including handmade glassware in vibrant shades that are colored using natural minerals, an ombre ceramic flask encased in an apple leather alternative sleeve, a pair of brass ice stamps with meticulously hand-painted ceramic handles using a green and amber ombre color blend and a brass napkin weight in the shape of an acorn, as a tribute to the exceptional oak casks which mature The Macallan whisky.

TOGETHER is exclusively sold as a complete set for £10,000 and will be available domestically in limited numbers from October 11, 2023.
