Although we’d still drink their famous single malt if it came splashing around in a McDonald’s cup, Scotch whisky maker Macallan insists on providing the same amount of attention and care to what goes on outside of the bottle as they do to what’s inside. Since its launch a couple of years ago, Macallan’s Masters of Photography Collection (~$2,600 per bottle) has produced some amazing labels shot by renowned photographers from around the world. This year, for their third Masters series, Macallan chose celebrated photographer Annie Leibovitz. Leibovitz is, of course, the artist responsible for some of the most iconic photos of a generation (like the one with a buck-naked John Lennon wrapped up around a bored Yoko, or the one of naked pregnant Demi — luckily she didn’t continue the birthday-suit theme for the Masters).
Each of the four unique single malts was crafted to reflect the distinct expression of its paired, signed Leibovitz print. The deep, rich colors of the photographs are somewhat of a departure from the black-and-white shots of prior Masters Collections. Scottish actor Kevin McKidd is featured on the labels, which depict him lounging around in different settings looking cool — which is exactly how you’ll feel after a few glasses of the stuff.
Available now, the special-edition bottles will be limited to a run of only 1,000, so you’d better snatch them up as quickly as you can.
