A Sin­gle Malt in Time

Exquisite Taste - - Grapevine - (www.time­cap­tured.com) (www.edring­ton.com)

The leg­endary Scottish dis­tillery The Ma­callan has made a name for it­self thanks to its out­stand­ing sin­gle malt whiskies. Founded in 1824 in Spey­side, the brand’s ret­ro­spec­tive nat­u­ral raw ma­te­ri­als, plus its tra­di­tional meth­ods and crafts­man­ship, brought The Ma­callan to the front line of the world’s liquor scene, where it has re­mained for decades.

Artists by na­ture, the brand col­lab­o­rates with bril­liant pho­tog­ra­phers to com­bine the metic­u­lous art of whisky mak­ing with the pho­tog­ra­phers’ artis­tic in­ter­pre­ta­tions of the world of The Ma­callan. The re­sult is a se­ries of unique lim­ited edi­tion whiskies that come with stun­ning art­works re­flect­ing the brand’s val­ues, aptly named The Ma­callan Mas­ters of Pho­tog­ra­phy.

Pre­vi­ous iconic pho­tog­ra­phers col­lab­o­rat­ing in The Ma­callan pro­ject in­clude Rankin, Al­bert Wat­son, An­nie Lei­bovitz, El­liott Er­witt and Mario Testino. The lat­est ad­di­tion to this ex­clu­sive group is Steven Klein, who man­aged to eter­nalise a mo­ment in time through his lens and come up with a short film and ten in­di­vid­ual im­ages on a mag­nif­i­cent mon­tage ti­tled Time Cap­tured.

Def­i­nitely a col­lectible not to be missed with only 1,000 bot­tles re­leased across the world, The Ma­callan Mas­ters of Pho­tog­ra­phy: Steven Klein edi­tion is en­closed in an as­ton­ish­ing black case com­pris­ing the lim­ited edi­tion whisky, a Steven Klein signed print and horse’s head bot­tle stop­per, among other things. With notes of sweet berry and hints of light vanilla, oak, caramelised gin­ger and or­ange, this am­brosial nec­tar shows a sub­tle smok­i­ness.
