The Macallan Adds New Single Malt Whisky to Fine & Rare Collection


November 8, 2021

The Macallan has introduced a new single malt whisky into its Fine & Rare Collection with the launch of The 1990 Edition.

Matured in a single sherry seasoned American oak butt cask for 30 years, The Macallan Fine & Rare 1990 marks the latest addition to the largest assembly of vintage-dated, single malt whiskies in the world. Filled on June 7th, 1990 and bottled in 2021, the single cask whisky is presented at its natural cask strength (54.9%).

Launched in 2002, The Macallan Fine & Rare Collection comprises 58 individual releases spanning eight decades, from the legendary 1926 to the most recent release, the 1990, exemplifying the richness of The Macallan’s legacy.  

With only 467 bottles available, Fine & Rare 1990 features the cask number, year of distillation and year of bottling printed on the label, while the age, strength and volume are all handwritten in keeping with the tradition that began when the collection was born.

Each bottle is encased in an FSC certified European oak presentation box which also contains information on how to record a Vintage Macallan Fine & Rare bottle in The Macallan Vintage Bottle Register in Easter Elchies House, the spiritual home of the brand located on The Macallan Estate. 

The Macallan 1990 Edition will be available globally starting Nov. 8 for an SRP of $17,921 at The Macallan Estate Boutique, The Macallan global travel retail boutiques and select bars and restaurants and exclusive retailers.
