The Ma­callan x Ur­w­erk Flask

Ex­tra­or­di­nary com­plex­ity de­fined

Golf Asia (Malaysia) - - CONTENTS -

The Ma­callan is one of the world’s most ad­mired and awarded sin­gle malt whiskies since 1824. In its lat­est col­lab­o­ra­tion, The Ma­callan brings some­thing ex­tra­or­di­nary and in­no­va­tive to the world with its avant-garde part­ner, Swiss watch­maker UR­W­ERK.

The Ma­callan x UR­W­ERK Flask is a de­sign mas­ter­piece, in­tri­cately made of 156 parts, all of which form a crit­i­cally us­able and highly col­lectible lux­ury mas­ter­piece. There are two masters within the Flask, dif­fer­ent yet com­ple­men­tary in its fields. Each of the lim­ited edi­tion flasks pro­duced cap­ture a mo­ment in time and re­sult in an exquisitely cre­ative and tech­ni­cal process.

Ken Grier, Cre­ative Direc­tor, The Ma­callan said,” The Ma­callan con­tin­ues to push the bound­aries of pos­si­bil­ity and has been de­fy­ing con­ven­tion since 1825. Through in­spir­ing part­ner­ships we are con­tin­u­ing to change the rhythm of tra­di­tional Scotch whisky per­cep­tions”.

Be­cause of the top­notch mas­tery, in­tri­cacy and in­di­vid­u­al­ity of The Ma­callan and UR­W­ERK, it trans­formed or­di­nary ev­ery­day ob­jects into a ma­chined alu­minium, ti­ta­nium and stain­less steel work of art, pre­sented in a cus­tom de­sign box and loaded with in­trigu­ing fea­tures such as a cap with a connecting arm hid­den with 1mm ball click­ers, two ti­ta­nium tanks that en­cased the whisky to en­able dif­fer­ent ex­pres­sions, a unique spring-loaded mul­ti­di­rec­tional mouth­piece, winglets to stand the flask and a cask type wheel in­di­ca­tor.

Martin FREI, UR­W­ERK co-founder and chief de­signer, said:” When we were of­fered the op­por­tu­nity to col­lab­o­rate on this ad­ven­ture we im­me­di­ately said yes to the chal­lenge. I knew the flask had to be ex­cit­ing and dar­ing, while also pro­vid­ing plea­sure and I en­vi­sioned an ob­ject with com­plex sim­plic­ity, just like a good whisky – a flask mir­ror­ing its con­tent where peo­ple can take it in their hand and then start their jour­ney of dis­cov­ery.”
