Hong Kong Arts Month is in full swing. After years of being unable to welcome travellers, tourists coming to the city can now experience all the best creative offerings around town, including the much-anticipated return of Art Basel and Art Central. If you’re looking for an immersive art experience, renowned Scotch whisky The Macallan is also returning as one of the official sponsors of Art Basel Hong Kong, and they have prepared an engaging exhibition for the public to enjoy.
Whisky enthusiasts and those curious about the revered whisky can view The Macallan’s new 77 Years Old single malt whisky from the distillery’s Red Collection. The release is the first guest edition to be added to the collection since its debut in 2020. Consisting of a range of rare single malts dating back to its founding in 1824 by Alexander Reid, the Red Collection represents the significance of the colour red to the distillery’s history. The Macallan Red Collection 77 Years Old were matured in hand-picked oak casks from 1945, the year the Second World War ended, resulting in a unique whisky character featuring notes of citrus fruits, woodsmoke, antique oak, raisin, and dates, and baked custard, crystallised ginger, marmalade, and dried fruit.
Aside from introducing the 77 Years Old guest expression, visitors can experience a multisensory installation inspired by the red series in collaboration with renowned Spanish artist Javi Aznarez. Be transported from the distillery’s past to the present, culminating in a celebration in The Macallan Bar, located in the heart of The Macallan Distillery in Speyside, Scotland.
