Footnotes

  • The whisky contained in this bottle has lain at Macallan for over 60 years in the confines of an oaken cask brought from Jerez. It is now dark honey-gold in colour and is almost inconceivably smooth with a luscious hint of dry-sweetness in the malt.

    The rarity of this bottle is celebrated on a unique label designed by the Internationally acclaimed British Artist Peter Blake. It incorporates images of the 1920's, only 12 bottles carrying this label have been issued.

    Born in 1932, Sir. Peter Blake is most popularly known for co-creating the Beatles' album cover of Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club band in 1967, which was voted for by the 'Rolling Stone' magazine as the number one album of all time from a list of 500. Blake has said of his vision for the cover that he wanted to "assemble a magical crowd around the band. I offered the idea that if they had just played a concert in the park, the cover could be a photograph of them with the group who had watched the concert. If we did this by using cardboard cut-outs, it could be whomever they [The Beatles] wanted."
