The Macallanís meticulous approach to wood and cask selection has such a profound effect on the liquid, it was felt this was a perfect way to showcase one of the casks.

Commenting on how the collaboration came about, Aaron Masonde, Oblix bar manager said: "The Macallan and Oblix share a likeness in that we are both trying to push boundaries and change the way people perceive food and drink. In partnership with The Macallan we have worked together to offer guests a new experience to discover the complexities of The Macallan, perfectly complemented with cheese."

It will also offer a Maxxium Malts cheeseboard and pairing with whiskies such as Auchentoshan, Laphroaig and Highland Park.
