In 2009, Scotch whisky maker the Macallan launched its Masters of Photography Collection, the first release of which comprised bottles with labels showcasing prints from internationally renowned photographer Rankin. The second limited-edition release from that series, which arrived stateside in January, features labels courtesy of Scottish photographer Albert Watson and a 20-year-old single malt aged in sherry oak barrels. Each label highlights a photo that Watson took while following a young couple from the oak forests of Spain to the distillery in Scotland’s Speyside region—the same journey taken by the Macallan’s barrel wood. The sherry-aged single-malt whisky from this collection offers dark chocolate, citrus, cloves, and ginger on the nose, with a greater array of spices, as well as fruits such as raisins and dates, on the palate. Of the 1,000 bottles of the new Masters of Photography Collection available worldwide, only 200 are reserved for the U.S. market. Each is priced at $1,000. (www.themacallan.com)
