Macallan – The Archival Series Folio 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5
The Archival Series Folio 1
The much anticipated 2015 limited release from the Macallan. Available only from the distillery, with no more than 2,000 bottles made available. Presented in a lovely book-shaped tin which contains a no age statement bottle, although we have been informed by the distillery that it is a minimum of 12 years old sherry matured whisky, this also comes with a hardback book presenting 80’s Macallan advertisement pictures along with a USB stick continuing the advertising archive.
The Archival Series Folio 2
Released in 2017 this is the second edition in the Archival Series and is beautifully presented in a tin book style case featuring a water colour painting from Sara Midda. Included is a hardback book which revisits The Macallan’s original print, press & film advertising campaign along with a USB stick with distillery photographs from advertisement archives. The distillery has confirmed that this release was limited to 2000 bottles.
The Archival Series Folio 3
Released in 2018 this is the third edition in the Archival Series and is beautifully presented in a tin book style case which includes a hardback book. Folio 3 leads with an advertising feature that celebrates the idea that whisky is best made in cold weather, inspired by a tradition commented on by the Macallan Distillery Manager to David Holmes and Nick Salaman on a visit to The Macallan Estate. Continuing the highly distinctive style of the ads and the simple but memorable strapline that put the mantra of “”less is more”” at its heart, the continuing campaign continued to speak loudly in small spaces and gain momentum with a wider audience.
The Archival Series Folio 4
Released in 2019 this is the Fourth edition in the Archival Series and is beautifully presented in a tin book style case which includes a hardback book. It features an advertisement including a Strathspey composed by James Scott Skinner (1843-1927). The ad notes that Skinner, “The Strathspey King”, was moved to music by the lilting flavour and melting resonances of a tumbler of his favourite malt whisky – The Macallan.
The Archival Series Folio 5
The Macallan Folio 5 commemorates an advert featuring the tale of a “Luggy Bonnet” with the words “Keep this knot firmly tied”. The sketched image recollects a scene of acquaintances at the end of a day on Speyside when one sportsman talks of a so-called “disaster”, missing the opportunity of a dram of The Macallan from the “Laird” as a result of his hat covering his ears. The allure of this captivating Single Malt whisky features a rich aroma of dates and fresh figs that make way to sweet raisin, mingled with a warming ginger and wood spice. The whisky is inspired by the iconic advert and brings this memorable campaign to life once again.
