Macallan Private Eye

Macallan Private Eye. One of the most collectible Macallans of all time, bottled in 1996 for the 35th anniversary of the famous satirical magazine Private Eye. The vatting produced 5,000 bottles and included one cask from 1961. This special edition is also unique in that it features a superb screenprinted label by the legendary gonzo illustrator Ralph Steadman.

Macallan Private Eye History

1996 represented a special year for Private Eye magazine as it was their 35th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion they commissioned a special bottling by Macallan to be made widely available to its readers. The bottles contain whisky that was distilled in the year of Private Eye’s founding, 1961, that was vatted together with several other Macallan casks.

This bottle was put on general release at £36 per bottle. There was even a nationwide advertising campaign in the Daily Telegraph. It was released in an edition of 5,000 bottles.  Each bottle was individually numbered.
