The Masters of Photography whiskies are available from specialist retailers on a limited release of 2030 bottles, priced at £1000 each.
Each pack includes a photo book featuring 158 images and a handmade glass flask containing the single cask malt as selected by The Macallan whisky maker Bob Dalgarnom.
Previous contributors to the series include Annie Leibovitz, Albert Watson and Paisley-born fashion photographer Rankin.
The release of The Macallan’s latest limited edition range comes in the wake of its Amber expression securing the title of Whisky of the Year 2013 from retailer The Whisky Shop.
Part of the brand’s ‘1824’ series, The Macallan Amber was awarded the title following a judging process that combined customer votes, with sales and recommendations from store managers.
The whiskies are available on a limited release of 2030 bottles.
Ken Grier, director of malts at Edrington Group, the firm behind The Macallan, said the Whisky of the Year title was testimony to the brand’s “innovative approach”. “We are delighted to receive this award for The Macallan Amber,” he said.
