On my nightly cruises through the whisky web I stumbled across a most amazing picture. It is attributed to a company called Ice Caters who have set out on a quest for the perfect ice ball and it unmistakably shows the famous Macallan Ice Ball Maker. But the glass – clearly – contains nothing we could identify as an ordinary (if you allow it to be called so) Macallan single malt Scotch whisky.
Well-informed sources say that Macallan is secretly working on a revolutionary new line of whisky epxressions – The Crystal Macallan. Well in line with the growing trend towards uncoloured whiskies it will nevertheless set a new benchmark in chill-filtration technology.
Finally the perfect match for the Ice Ball Serve has been found. Renowned French Glassmaker Lalique is said to design a spherical crystal decanter for the flagship MacCrystal 40. It will be available at selected duty free airport shops in very limited quantities from the 1st of April.
