27th September 2022
The famous whisky will release a bottle for each decade of James Bond
By MI6 Staff
Through a behind-the-scenes exploration of the James Bond archives, this new release celebrates 007 and The Macallan as modern innovators linked by their Scottish heritage. The Macallan and James Bond are bound together by their shared Scottish heritage, innovative nature, and the pursuit of excellence.
The company has created a collection comprising six limited edition bottles inspired by each of The Six Decades of Bond, telling the story of innovation over 60 years and the pioneering character attributes of James Bond and The Macallan.
A promotional video brings the concept artwork from these films to life in stunning animation.
The packaging of each bottle features an original illustrative design and colour to denote the decade it represents. The distinctive artwork brings to life the creative development process of the films in a behind-the-scenes exploration of the James Bond archives.
The timeless single malt has been developed to reflect the enduring character of James Bond, a force of nature defined by his Scottish heritage. The Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Kirsteen Campbell, has created a whisky with extreme grace balanced by remarkable strength and character - just like Bond himself. The expression exudes a sense of style and maturity which has evolved over the years. It has a natural colour of Suisse gold and an ABV of 43.7% as a homage to James Bond’s agent number, 007. The whisky is consistent within all six bottles.
