Macallan presented a limited collection of the Anecdotes of Ages whiskey

15.03.2021, News

The bottles were elaborated by the artist who designed the cover of The Beatles’ cult album.


The new Anecdotes of Ages collection includes 13 bottles of whiskey dated back to 1967: the period of time, when the pop-culture grasped the artistic style of Sir Peter Blake, a British artist and a pioneer of the British pop art, who created the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band for the famous Liverpool Four.

Each bottle is decorated with the label depicting Blake’s original collage, with which the renowned Scottish brand has been working for over 30 years.

“I am deeply inspired by Macallan’s incredible legacy and its focus on family, tradition and the natural world” – Blake says. – Each collage in the Anecdotes of Ages collection is inspired by the history and legacy of Macallan, respecting the time and craft: two important components of my own creative process. I worked meticulously on each collage, basing myself upon The Macallan Estate’s rich history, in order to create a collection that is a celebration of art and whiskey”.

The bottles for this collection are hand-blown, sealed with oak cork, and the labels are created by Blake himself. The whiskey comes in a European oak box with a photograph of Blake’s collaboration with The Macallan, a leather-bound book, and a Certificate of Authenticity.

“This exceptional 1967 whiskey was chosen because of its classic yet colorful character, which is reminiscent of the works of Sir Peter Blake dated back to the same year,” – Sarah Burgess, Macallan’s spokeswoman said. “This is a truly special single malt whiskey with notes of oak, fig, rich hazelnut and strawberry notes, and a complex aftertaste with notes of chocolate and a touch of peach”.

A total of 332 bottles of the Anecdotes of Ages Collection: Down to Work Limited Edition are available worldwide, with the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of US $ 83,000.00 per bottle.

One of the 13 original bottles from the new collection are to be sold at Sotheby’s live auction in New York on March 13, 2021, and the funds raised will be donated to the Solomon Guggenheim Museum.
