Scotch whisky brand The Macallan and its luxury automotive partner, Bentley Motors, have collaborated to unveil the design of the latest Macallan single malt whisky, The Macallan Horizon.

The prototype of The Macallan Horizon, which will be made available in summer 2023, “fuses both traditional craftsmanship and innovative materials, with cutting edge technology to create an exclusive horizontal design,” The Macallan said in a news release.

A tribute to The Macallan’s “Six Pillars” The Macallan Horizon design incorporates six upcycled, repurposed or ethically sourced materials that are important to The Macallan and Bentley.

The materials are:

  • Recycled copper from the disused spirit stills from The Macallan’s former distillery
  • Aluminum from the Bentley Motors manufacturing process
  • Recycled wood
  • Recyclable glassused in the recently unveiled Bentley Mulliner grand tourer
  • Carbon neutral leather also used in the recently unveiled Bentley Mulliner grand tourer
  • The whisky itself

“Taking inspiration from the automotive industry, we are showcasing our creative vision and concept development of The Macallan Horizon, which is among the most unique projects we have embarked on in our almost 200-year history,” Jaume Ferras, global creative director for The Macallan, said.

“I am incredibly proud of the beautiful design we have created together for The Macallan Horizon and the unique materials we are incorporating. It simply would not be possible without the incomparable craftsmanship and creativity for which The Macallan and Bentley Motors are renowned and is the embodiment of the uncompromised excellence pursued by The Macallan since 1824.”

The Macallan and Bentley launched their global partnership in July 2021 with a focus on sustainability.

“Our prototype for The Macallan Horizon is truly pioneering in both its design and use of materials,” Bentley Head of Design Collaborations Chris Cooke said. “It’s a fusion of the sharply defined yet curvaceous Bentley design DNA, The Macallan’s innovation and recycled materials from both iconic British brands. The form of the design has allowed us to almost treat light as another material in itself, and the interplay between light and the wood, aluminum and copper materials is extraordinary. In being both an object of beauty in itself and demonstrating such innovation, it’s a representation of what’s coming next from our partnership.”
