The Macallan's new Home Collection celebrates the famous Scotch distillery's origins - the first of which pays tribute to the Distillery itself, titled "The Home Collection: The Distillery"

 

“I started off by sketching some scenes from around the  Distillery. I chose the image of the main entrance as the composition looked nice and it shows the biggest of the domes to good effect, as does the image of the glass frontage.

To show a scene from the inside, I focused on one of The Macallan's Curiously Small  Copper Stills. The copper looked great and I was also able to capture some of the timber ceilings. I had not done watercolour work for quite some time, so I was excited to be given the opportunity to use them again”.

Taking inspiration from The Macallan's 485-acre Estate, Macallan staff and artist Colin Rizza had sought to render the distillery's beauty in watercolor. Macallan tells us that Colin and his family have deep ties with the distillery, with the artist himself and his children and grandchildren having work at the distillery over the past three decades. His watercolor work of distillery is featured on both the new expression's label and packaging.

"The delicate, complex nose, sweet spice and gently mellowing palate and rich, medium finish are waiting to welcome you into our home in the heart of Speyside, Scotland."

 

The expression was created using specially selected European and American oak casks and refill casks.
