The Macallan Releases James Bond 60th Anniversary Edition

Special edition Scotch available in six Bond-themed bottles to celebrate diamond anniversary of the film series.

Scotch whisky brand The Macallan has released a special James Bond-themed whisky in honour of the 60th anniversary of the film franchise. The limited edition whisky is a collaboration between The Macallan and Eon Productions, the company behind the James Bond films.

The whisky is a blend of The Macallan’s rarest and most expensive whiskies, and is available in six limited edition bottles with James Bond-themed labels and packaging.

Each bottle of this limited edition whisky is packaged with an original illustrative design and colour that represents a specific decade in the history of the James Bond films. The distinctive artwork brings to life the creative development process of the films, offering a behind-the-scenes exploration of the James Bond archives.

Kirsteen Campbell, The Macallan’s Master Whisky Maker, has created a whisky the company claims has extreme grace balanced by remarkable strength and character – just like Bond himself. It has a natural colour of Suisse gold and an ABV of 43.7% as a homage to James Bond’s agent number, 007.

The Macallan’s association with 007 goes back to Skyfall, in which several of their whiskies appeared, including the  The Macallan Fine & Rare 1962 to commemorate Bond’s cinematic half century.

The whisky is available for purchase on The Macallan’s website.

David Leigh founded The James Bond Dossier in 2002. A fan of 007 since the age of 8, he is also author of The Complete Guide to the Drinks of James Bond. You can order a copy here if you don't own it already.
