Stella and Mary have partnered with The Macallan on the creation of the third edition of The Harmony Collection – the limited annual release series.

The third release in The Macallan Harmony Collection celebrates the Scottish countryside.

The third instalment in the annual release series includes two distinctive expressions: The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow and Green Meadow, inspired by The McCartney sisters’ love of Scotland, which stems from their memories of the Scottish countryside.

To showcase this, the presentation boxes and bottle labels have been made using discarded meadow cuttings and the packaging of each release features photography of The Macallan Estate captured by Mary McCartney.

The Macallan Whisky Mastery Team has taken inspiration from natural Scottish grasslands to create two distinctive, limited-edition whiskies, using a combination of sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks.

Steven Bremner, whisky maker said: “There is so much to discover with The Macallan Harmony Collection Amber Meadow. It is a single malt redolent of warm meadows and mature barley fields, with a rich, citrus scented finish.

“The 100% natural summer evening colour derived from our exceptional sherry seasoned oak and bourbon casks reflects the richness of the flavour which awaits.

"On the nose fresh citrus fruits and honeysuckle are complemented by hints of vanilla, coconut and ripe barley fields. On tasting, notes of oak, lemon, melon are prominent, accompanied by flavours of classic scone and almond with green tea, before giving way to a rich and sweet long finish.”

A first for Stella and Mary, the partnership with The Macallan marks a creative union of the McCartney sisters.

This debut joint venture combines their creative talents in a collaboration which enables them to celebrate their memories of Scotland.

These include handmade glassware in vibrant shades that are coloured using natural minerals, an ombre ceramic flask encased in an apple leather alternative sleeve, a pair of brass ice stamps with meticulously hand-painted ceramic handles using a green and amber ombre colour blend and a brass napkin weight in the shape of an acorn, as a tribute to the exceptional oak casks which mature The Macallan whisky.
