The Macallan To Release The Macallan Red Collection In Toronto

Inspired by the significance of the colour red throughout the history of the brand, The Macallan Red Collection features a careful curation of ongoing aged expressions and high-aged guest releases.

The LCBO’s historic Yonge & Summerhill Toronto location will receive a single bottle of The Macallan 40 Years Old; The Macallan 50 Years Old; The Macallan 74 Years Old; The Macallan 77 Years Old; and The Macallan 78 Years Old – collectively valued at $645,000 CAD.

To celebrate this rare occasion, The Macallan will host an exclusive dinner in collaboration with LCBO Vintages and Michelin-starred Alo on November 2, where guests will have first access to purchase the releases. For more information on ticket details, please contact Strategic Objectives.

In addition, a unique shopping experience will run at the historic LCBO Yonge & Summerhill location from November 8 to 25, 2023, where customers are invited to shop select releases from The Macallan in store.

Extraordinary Single Malt Whiskies Anchor the Range

At the heart of The Red Collection is The Macallan 40 Years Old, The Macallan 50 Years Old and The Macallan 60 Years Old. These extraordinary single malts, which will anchor the range, are the oldest ongoing expressions ever offered by The Macallan and will be available in limited quantities globally.

Occasionally they will be joined by special high-aged guest releases, commencing with The Macallan 71 Years Old, The Macallan 74 Years Old and The Macallan 78 Years Old. These incredibly rare single malts are among the world’s oldest Scotch whiskies, with The Macallan 74 Years Old, The Macallan 77 Years Old and The Macallan 78 Years Old being some of the oldest bottlings ever released in the history of the brand.

Encased in Soft, Red Leather and European Oak

Sustainability is a constant guiding principle for The Macallan. Each expression in The Red Collection is encased in an exquisite oak presentation box, created from the same sustainable European oak used to craft The Macallan’s exceptional oak casks. The boxes are beautifully upholstered with sustainably sourced soft, red leather from Scottish supplier Bridge of Weir Leather Company, which creates upholstery for leading luxury car brands across the globe.

An animated film in collaboration with celebrated Spanish painter and illustrator, Javi Aznarez, was created to introduce and celebrate The Red Collection. Aznarez’s striking graphic art has been featured in several Hollywood films, including Wes Anderson’s acclaimed The French Dispatch. The film is set to music recorded by Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti, one of the world’s most influential classical artists of today.

  • The Macallan 40 Years Old $60,000 CAD
