The Macallan mark six decades of James Bond with anniversary collection


The Macallan James Bond 60th Anniversary Release has been unveiled to mark The Six Decades of James Bond films.  The collection comprises six limited edition bottles with each unique pack designed to reflect the decade that it represents,  bringing to life the creative development process of the films in a behind the scenes exploration of the James Bond archives.

The single malt whisky has been created by The Macallan Master Whisky Maker, Kirsteen Campbell to reflect the enduring character of James Bond, a force of nature defined by his Scottish heritage, who carries himself with modesty and humility. Like James Bond, the expression exudes a sense of style and maturity which has evolved over the years.

In recent years, The Macallan has become James Bond’s whisky of choice and, most recently, it featured in Skyfall when James Bond drinks The Macallan Fine & Rare 1962 as an ode to the 50th anniversary.

Jaume Ferras, Global Creative Director for The Macallan, said, “This October, James Bond will celebrate its 60th anniversary, making it the longest running and one of the most loved franchises in the world of entertainment, comprising 25 films over six decades and six lead actors over time. The Macallan is James Bond’s whisky of choice and as two renowned global brands, we share many synergies, most notably as modern innovators linked by our Scottish heritage.”

The Macallan has also created a series of immersive experiences to celebrate the 60th anniversary of James Bond including a unique exhibition – The Macallan in Cinema – at The Macallan Estate, which will take viewers through The Macallan’s history on film and transport them through the six decades of James Bond. A selection of films from across the years will also be shown at The Macallan Estate during a series of exclusive screenings.

The Macallan James Bond 60th Anniversary Release will have an RRSP of US$800 / £600.
