The Macallan Launching Distil Your World New York

The Macallan Launching Distil Your World New York

The collaboration with the Roca brothers is said to capture the essence of the city.

29 April 2022

The Macallan has unveiled Distil Your World New York, a single malt whisky and accompanying documentary aiming to capture the essence of the American city.

The producer has described the drink as having big apple notes on the nose with peanut brittle and milk chocolate, a baked apple and raisin palate with chocolate covered nuts, with a medium finish containing notes of roasted nuts and sweet oak.

The Macallan’s whisky maker Polly Logan said, “This project is a homage to the people of New York. The daring, creative and diverse characters we’ve met along the way. This whisky is bold, vibrant and uplifting – just like each of them. We really looked towards the quintessential tastes of New York – sweet candy, waffles, peanut brittle, chocolate, and pecans. The city’s thriving street food scene was a great source of inspiration.”

The whisky is created with a combination of 6 European and American oak casks, with a colour describe as City sunrise. Its ABV is 49.5% and marks the latest released in the series that explores locations around the globe, with London and Jerez among them.

The Macallan Distil Your World New York is a limited-edition bottle with two different RRP’s - $4,200 for the 70cl bottle and $4,500 for the 75cl bottle. It will be made available at select The Macallan Boutiques around the world, as well as specialist retailers and exclusive non-specialist retailers from April 2022.

Joan Roca added: “The originality of New York is endless, it’s impossible to portray it with just one creation, so we needed to express it through an extended menu, where every dish tells a story. The city grabs hold of you instantly. Its energy pushed us to create a complex and daring menu, with ideas that we explored for the very first time.”
