Macallan 60 Year Old Lalique Six Pillars Collection. Released in 2011, this is the fourth decanter in a highly limited, exclusive Macallan collaboration with crystal makers, Lalique. The series is called The Six Pillars collection and saw 6 decanters released over eleven years, each celebrating one of the six facets that Macallan believe set them apart from Scotland’s other distilleries. The Macallan Six Pillars are Exceptional Oak Casks, Spiritual Home, Curiously Small Stills, Finest Cut, Natural Colour, and Peerless Spirit.
This art deco decanter champions the “Curiously Small Stills” pillar, and according to Macallan, “Lalique echoed the round kettle shape of The Macallan’s small pot stills, visible at the sides of this decanter. The stopper mimics the shape of the handle complete with copper from a retired still, whilst the cabochon detail mirrors the oval-shaped rivets around the stills’ windows.” Macallan 60-Year-Old Lalique Six Pillars Collection
