The Macallan Concept No. 3 the third and
final bottling in the travel retail
one year later than Macallan whisky fans
expected to see it released due to the
Covid pandemic, The Macallan Concept No.
3, the third and final expression in the
Macallan Concept series, it is set to
hit the shelves of selected key airports
globally and The Macallan Airport
Boutiques with a price tag of US $150
per 70cl bottle.
The Macallan Concept No. 3 was matured
in a combination of American ex-Sherry
casks, European oak and selected refill
oak casks before being bottled at 40.8%
The final release in the series brings
together the artistry and expertise of
whisky making with the bold visual
creativity of graphic design.
The artistic graphic design adorning the
bottle label and box of Concept No. 3 is
the work of graphic designer David
Carson who visited The Macallanís
beautiful 485-acre Speyside Estate in
Speyside in Scotland, where he spent
time with The Macallan Whisky Maker
During his visit they discovered that a
remarkable number of similarities define
their approach to their respective
crafts. Both are driven to revisit and
evolve their work, which enables them to
create greater depth by ensuring every
element has a distinct purpose.
Polly recounts: "Our encounter at the
distillery inspired me to create this
light, warm, welcoming whisky just like
David himself. A bright and fresh
whisky, a little unexpected for The
Macallan, with a hue which conveys the
vibrancy and lightness found within. The
colour, California Gold, a light warm
yellow, reflects Davidís years on the US
If you have no plans to travel in the
near future, which I am sure not many
people do in these strange times then
you will find the current Macallan
whisky range as well as a few special
limited releases from the past available
from specialist online whisky retailers
from 27th May 2021.
