The Macallan, has today announced the launch of a new limited-edition expression, in collaboration with the Roca brothers, owners of El Celler de Can Roca, twice named Best Restaurant in the World.

The Macallan - Distil Your World New York

This latest collaboration between The Macallan and The Roca brothers, is said to reflect the distinctive artistic character of New York; its towering architecture and the culinary eclecticism offered by its delis, diners and street food.

Created by The Macallan Whisky Maker Polly Logan, Distil Your World New York, delivers notes of apple, peanut brittle, milk chocolate, rising dough, fresh rain and cherry blossom on the nose. Followed by notes of baked apple, raisin, chocolate covered nuts, maple syrup, toasted waffles and salted pecans on the palate.

To uncover the mastery behind New York, Polly and Joan Roca travelled to the city to spend time with the artists who fuel its vibrant culture; the visionaries driving its inimitable creativity and the thinkers chronicling the city.

Their journey and the people they encountered, including globally acclaimed jazz musician Wynton Marsalis and legendary street artist Lady Pink, are featured in a new 30-minute documentary which premiered in New York before its release on Amazon Prime Video and YouTube in April 2022.

Commenting on the launch, Polly Logan, said: “This project is a homage to the people of New York. The daring, creative and diverse characters we’ve met along the way. This whisky is bold, vibrant and uplifting – just like each of them. We really looked towards the quintessential tastes of New York – sweet candy, waffles, peanut brittle, chocolate, and pecans. The city’s thriving street food scene was a great source of inspiration.”

The Macallan - Distil Your World New York, will be available later this month from select Macallan Boutiques, for a RRP of $4,200 – 70cl and $4,500 – 75cl.
