The Macallan Distil Your World New York Single Cask Edition 55% ABV 2002
Sotheby’s has again partnered with The Macallan Distillery to bring to auction an exclusive, limited edition version of The Macallan’s recent release of Distil Your World New York, a whisky that captures the essence of one of the most iconic cities in the world.
The auction offers collectors the first and only opportunity to acquire one of two bottles created of this single cask whisky, with the second bottle to be kept in The Macallan archive, never to be sold.
This extraordinary lot includes a limited edition version of the Distil Your World New York bottle, produced from a single sherry seasoned oak puncheon cask distilled in 2002 and bottled at cask strength, housed in a limited-edition, striking blue presentation box featuring an engraved aerial map of New York. Also included is a booklet about the bottle and Distil Your World New York series that is signed by the talent featured in the Distil Your World New York documentary that aired with the release of the original bottle.
This exclusive edition of Distil Your World New York is a single cask constituent whisky to the original release of Distil Your World New York in April 2022 paying homage to the city’s inimitable vibrant culture. Also included is a dinner experience for the winning bidder and three guests at the Three MICHELIN Star El Celler de Can Roca, Girona, Spain.
All proceeds from the sale of this lot will benefit ChaShaMa, a non-profit arts organization based in New York City that nurtures artists by transforming unused real estate into affordable work and presentation spaces. The proceed's raised will benefit small businesses, underserved NYC communities, and the arts in NYC, building on The Macallan's longstanding history celebrating artistry and supporting the arts.
