The Macallan Teams Up with Annie Leibovitz
Single malt whisky brand The Macallan has commissioned famous photographer, Annie Leibovitz for the third edition of its Masters of Photography series.
The Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz Edition sees Leibovitz bring to life the essence of the brand through her unique photographer’s eye, with renowned Scottish actor Kevin McKidd cast in the role of leading man.
“This year, Annie Leibovitz has interpreted four single cask variants released for the first time, resulting in four powerful images,” the company says.
Shot against dramatic backdrops in and around New York City, Annie Leibovitz captures the brilliance of a moment where everything comes together, showcasing the stature of whisky as an icon of taste and masculinity.
The Macallan Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz Edition comprises 1,000 limited edition bottles, of which there are four different versions.
Each bottle contains one of four unique single malts, crafted to reflect the mood of the signed Annie Leibovitz print that it is paired with.
The bottle and print are presented in a bespoke photo-archival box, stamped with The Macallan brand and Annie Leibovitz’s name.
The Macallan Masters of Photography: Annie Leibovitz edition is available in the UK from September 2012, priced at approximately £1700 ($2,750).
