Macallan's New Scotch Line Is In Perfect 'Harmony' With Your Coffee
The Macallan, one of Scotland’s luxury single-malt whiskey masters, is known for experimental collections that expand the concept of whiskey to embrace everything from history to gastronomy. It’s no surprise, then, that the inspiration for The Macallan’s newest collection of whiskeys is Ethiopian coffee.
On October 25, 2022, The Macallan revealed its Harmony II Collection of two single-malt whiskeys that complement, meld, and pair with Ethiopian arabica coffees. The first is a sweet espresso-toned Intense Arabica whiskey, with notes of tiramisu, sweet oak, and dark chocolate, and the second is the milder Smooth Arabica, with hints of ground coffee, vanilla, and hazelnut.
Coffee isn’t actually an ingredient in these spirits, serving only as inspiration, and both whiskeys have ABV ratings above 40%. Nodding to The Macallan's commitment to sustainability, the Harmony II Collection incorporates sustainable packaging with a presentation box that uses repurposed husks from coffee beans.
