In 2018, The Macallan opened a new chapter in its history with the launch of its award-winning Speyside distillery. Designed by internationally acclaimed architects to promote sustainability, the building takes inspiration from the surrounding ancient Scottish hills. It stands nearby Easter Elchies House, the Highland Manor built in 1700 which is The Macallan's spiritual home and remains the heartbeat of The Macallan's beautiful 485-acre Estate. Matured exclusively in Oloroso sherry seasoned oak casks from Jerez, Spain. The Macallan Sherry Oak whiskies are defined by their rich flavours of vanilla, dried fruits, and ginger spice with a long finish. This is the second release in the limited annual series with inspiration from Macallans inherent curiosity, and innovative and creative mindset. The edition continues to draw from their deep rooted connection to the natural world. UK-based coffee artist Dhan Tamang crafted a range of coffee art, sharing his knowledge on the art of the perfect coffee serve and sensory perceptions, while leading coffee historian Professor Jonathan Morris provided an insight into the roots of coffee and how it has become the global phenomenon it is today. Inspired by Intense Arabica, Macallan Harmony Collection exudes notes of espresso, dark chocolate and sweet oak. The intensely flavoured single malt invites you to immerse yourself in a sensory journey through flavour and aroma.

To clear up any confusion or misinterpretation, none of these whiskies utilise infusions or flavourings to achieve their connection with chocolate or coffee. Rather, they are inspired by those flavours, and The Harmony Collection relies simply on Macallan’s traditional use of mixing and matching sherry-seasoned casks (both American oak and European oak) from a range of different ages to achieve a final flavour profile that shares attributes with the product providing the inspiration (i.e. chocolate or coffee). From its founding, through the subsequent owners of the distillery in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries and into the present century, the distillery has been recognised for its outstanding quality above all else. Today this remains the foundation for the worldwide fame of making their whiskies highly sought after and collectible. To create the coffee-inspired second edition of The Harmony Collection, I sought out intense notes in The Macallan's traditional sherry seasoned European oak casks that would offer the rich and satisfying elements of coffee, with the influence of sherry seasoned American oak casks adding sweeter and softer vanilla notes for a balanced and rounded experience. The Macallan Harmony Collection Smooth Arabica and The Macallan Harmony Collection Inspired by Intense Arabica celebrate the world of coffee and have been inspired by the Ethiopian Arabica coffee bean.

Steven Bremner, Whisky Maker, The Macallan, said: "Exploring the world of coffee with our masters in the industry, who shared their knowledge, creativity, and love for their art, was both an education and an inspiration. There are many parallels between the approach to creating incomparable whisky and coffee. Each requires unique skills and craftsmanship to achieve depth and complexity of taste and both worlds aim to deliver an extraordinary consumption experience." The Macallan whisky maker Steven Bremner has created the ‘intensely flavoured’ whiskies to pair with coffee, having been inspired by the Ethiopian Arabica coffee bean. Founded in 1824, The Macallan is renowned worldwide for its extraordinary single malt whiskies. Their outstanding quality and distinctive character reveal the uncompromised excellence pursued by The Macallan since it was established by Alexander Reid, on a plateau above the River Spey in north-east Scotland.

Bremner immersed himself in the art of coffee by hosting a masterclass with world-renowned coffee experts at The Macallan Estate. He explored the journey from field to cup, uncovering the unique process and distinct flavour profiles at each stage. Palate: Macallan’s DNA never strays too far from centre. This is a rich dram with a wonderfully textured mouthfeel that is surprisingly complex in the flavours it offers up. There’s cereal (malt, obviously, but also oats, ala porridge); spice (gingerbread); and then bittersweet notes of dark chocolate, caramel, and tiramisu.
