The Macallan folks like to do things big…like the new $15,000 Macallan Lalique expression: 57-year-old Macallan in a Lalique decanter! Ken Grier is the director of malts for Macallan parent Edrington Group, and he’ll update us on the latest from the Macallan and Highland Park, including the 1824 Collection series of travel retail expressions and the upcoming Highland Park 1964 and 1968 vintage releases. In the news, the Bourbon Hall of Fame welcomes 7 new members, $20,000 gets you your own whisky from Whyte and Mackay, and a look at the science of the cocktail.
