Renowned Scotch whisky brand, The Macallan, on Friday, September 15, introduced the world of sophistication and craftsmanship of its Double Cask 30 Years Old to an exclusive gathering of Nigeria’s business elites and celebrities.
Held at the upscale Tar Tar Restaurant in Abuja, the grand event showcased The Macallan’s heritage in craftsmanship and unwavering commitment to delivering the ultimate sensorial experience for whisky enthusiasts.
The Double Cask 30 Years Old is a testament to The Macallan’s devotion to the art of whisky distillery. Matured for three decades, the exceptional spirit combines the finest handpicked sherry-seasoned European and American oak casks, resulting in a complex character that narrates the perfect harmony of the two distinct worlds.
The distinguished guests, which included Business Partner, Paper Hospitality, Adegbe Ogbeh; Founder Africana Couture Nigeria, Charles Oronsaye; Edoro Abebe, Group CEO, The Vanilla Group; CEO, Zod International, Samer Zod and more, were taken on an immersive journey of the whisky brand.
Exhibiting a natural golden acorn hue, the Double Cask 30 YO offers a unique combination of fresh honeycomb, sweet toffee, and red apple aroma, while delivering a rich and smooth melody of cinnamon, ginger, and Madagascan vanilla on the palate. As guests sipped the single malt whisky, they were enveloped in the lush forests of Europe and America where these fruits were harvested.
“The Macallan Double Cask 30 Years Old is a truly exceptional whisky that is sure to delight even the most discerning palate,” said the Brand Manager of Edrington Portfolio in Nigeria, Hammed Adebiyi. “The expert blending of the finest sherry-seasoned oak casks from Europe and America has created a whisky with a complex and balanced flavour profile that is simply unmatched. We are delighted to launch this exceptional whisky in Nigeria, and we are confident that it will become an instant favourite among all whisky lovers in the country.”
The Macallan distinguishes its Double Cask range with extraordinary oak casks. These casks are the primary influencers in the quality, natural hue, and distinctive aromas and flavours that define the brand’s premium single malt whiskies.
The Double Cask 30 Years Old’s breathtaking allure was masterfully delivered through The Macallan’s collaboration with renowned American artist and photographer, Erik Madigan Heck. The exquisite showcase of the premium whisky’s signature profiles reflected The Macallan’s reverence for nature, boundless creativity and craftsmanship, and commitment to upholding its legacy.
The Macallan Brand Brand Ambassador, Abuja, Adeyinka Adepetun, said, “The Macallan has once again proven its commitment to providing connoisseurs with only the finest whisky with the unveiling of the Sherry Oak 25 Years Old and 30 Years Old expressions.”
