 Exquisite The Macallan and Lalique Cire Perdue Decanter

Decanter

At 70-years, The Macallan and Lalique Cire Perdue Decanter is not only The Macallan’s oldest single malt but arguably the most valuable whisky in the world at the moment.

The incredible decanter was produced using the lost wax process and is one-of-a-kind. Created at Lalique’s Paris studio, the exclusive piece was inspired by a ship’s decanter from the 1820s, the very same decade The Macallan was founded.
The century-old technique requires deft technique and is very intricate. First, a model must be made out of wax. This object is then layered with plaster and put into a blazing oven to melt the wax and bake the plaster. Following this, the molten crystal can be poured into the mould.

The whisky inside the exquisite decanter is just as impressive. The 70-year-old The Macallan has been taken from three sherry-seasoned Spanish oak casks filled in the years 1942, 1945 and 1946. Inside and out, this piece is a whisky connoisseur’s absolute dream!
