Glasgow Whisky Munros Collection Macallan 30 Year Old 1989

20th October 2020
Glasgow Whisky adds a premium selection to their single cask Munros Collection which launches with a Macallan 30 Year Old 1989 presented in a bespoke Glencairn Crystal decanter.

Glasgow Whisky Munros Collection Macallan 30 Year Old 1989Independent bottler 'Glasgow Whisky' which has been bottling Scotch single malt and blended whisky since 2007 has unveiled a new premium addition to their Munros Collection of cask strength single malt whiskies, a single cask Macallan 30 Year Old 1989 Vintage.

The Munros Collection Macallan 30 Year Old was distilled on the 26th January 1989, then matured in a single sherry cask for 30 years before being bottled on the 27th March 2020 at its natural strength which is now 49.1% ABV. The single cask produced only 131 70cl bottles.

The new limited edition Macallan 30 Year Old single cask, single malt is the first release in a new premium range to be added to The Munros Collection and Glasgow Whisky has teamed up with Glencairn Crystal to present the new premium end of the collection in a bespoke decanter which has been handcrafted by the Scottish family owned, award-winning Glencairn Crystal Studio. Produced from the highest quality lead free crystal, it features a beautiful double-sided engraving, on the back is a stunning Scottish mountain range, which is magnified through the whisky to the front of the decanter. The intricate engravings are infilled with white and copper and the Munros mountain theme is continued on the copper stopper.

Regarding the whisky which you will find in the decanter, there has been no water added, it has been bottled at its natural cask strength, it is naturally coloured and I am told that the spirit has received minimal filtration in order to retain the maximum fullness of character, aroma and flavour. The darkness of colour is solely from the influence of the sherry wood cask in which it has been matured. Glasgow Whisky describe it as having an enveloping heady mix of spiciness and warm aromatics.

Rory Taylor, Glasgow Whisky Sales Manager commented: "We are passionate about single malts and are excited to be adding a new premium level to our much-loved Munros single cask collection, starting with this superb Macallan 30 Year Old. We intend to release a new Munros super premium single malt each year going forwards.

"We're also excited about our new partnership with the team at Glencairn Crystal Studio who have created an eye-catching contemporary decanter for the premium range showcasing the high quality whisky inside. The team has been extremely professional and easy to work with making the whole process very simple."

Kenny Tweeddale, Glencairnís New Product Development Manager, commented:
"We are delighted to partner with Glasgow Whisky to honour our Scottish heritage by bringing the Munro mountains to life with this very special decanter. Our task was to create an elegant decanter that allowed the whisky to do the talking, whilst celebrating the Munros, so we made this exceptional Macallan integral to the overall design with the mountain range emerging through the liquid. We look forward to working on more Munro themed decanters to come".

The Munros Macallan 30 Year Old 1989 Vintage Single Cask Single Malt Scotch Whisky is exclusive to South East Asia and has a RRP of £5,000 per decanter. You will find the current Macallan whisky range as well as a few limited releases available from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange, The Whisky Shop and Master of Malt
