The Macallan has launched a travel retail-exclusive expression called The Harmony Collection Fine Cacao. It is the first in a limited-release series of single malts that will see the brand progress its journey towards sustainable packaging. The Harmony Collection Fine Cacao follows the release of The Harmony Collection Rich Cacao for domestic markets in 2021.
Crafted from a combination of European and American oak casks, the single malt whisky is characterised by a unique and elegant medium chocolate profile. The liquid is 40% ABV and has the colour of toasted cacao beans. On the nose it offers chocolate, butter toffee, oak and pear aromas. On the palate the liquid exudes chocolate covered raisins, ginger, fig and marzipan with a medium, chocolate finish, which pairs perfectly with the finest chocolate for a luxurious sensorial experience.
Sustainability has been a constant guiding principle for The Macallan since it began crafting its single malt whiskies amongst the beautiful Speyside nature. A portion of every purchase will be donated as proceeds to the Garden City Fund in Singapore, a World Heritage Site. As part of the brand’s key cornerstones of sustainability, The Macallan will be supporting selected organizations dedicated to the protection of our natural habitat.
The elegant presentation box is 100% recyclable and biodegradable and has been crafted using discarded cacao husks, a by-product in the chocolate-making process, which would have been sent to landfill or destroyed, and sees them reborn for a renewed purpose.
The line retails at US$160 and will be available in The Macallan boutiques in selected international airports, starting with Lotte Duty Free at Singapore Changi Airport from this month. A global roll-out will follow in other key travel retail hubs from June. Discover Opulentclub.com on the web.
