The Macallan Reveals Edition No. 2

The Macallan Edition No. 2

NEW YORK, Dec. 5, 2016 - The Macallan, the world's ultimate luxury single malt Scotch whisky, unveils Edition No. 2, a collaboration between Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno and co-foun

ders of El Celler de Can Roca - twice voted best restaurant in the world - Joan, Josep and Jordi Roca. The second release in the Edition Series, a growing collection of Macallan whiskies that explore unique and distinctive casks, The Macallan Edition No. 2 brings together seven handpicked cask types from four different Spanish bodegas and cooperages to showcase the strength of co-creation and mastery.

Continuing the diverse story of The Macallan's oak casks and their obsession with wood, the focus remains on the commitment introduced with The Macallan Edition No.1, to unlock the workings of the intricate whisky making process. From the provenance of the oak to the expert crafting of the cask, the seasoning and the size, it is these diverse components and, in this instance, the distinct personas of the collaborators, which have ultimately shaped Edition No.2. 



The Macallan Edition No. 2

The Macallan's Master Whisky Maker, Bob Dalgarno, and the Roca brothers, renowned chefs and brothers, imparted their creative spirits upon Edition No. 2 to bring to life the whisky's dynamic character through carefully handpicked cask types that represent different aspects of each of their personalities:

  • The European oak Tevasa casks selected by Bob Dalgarno define and carry the shape of Edition No.2 with characteristic notes of rich, dried fruit.  This speaks of his ever curious, patient and empathetic character.
  • Closely following are notes of green wood and toffee from the American and European oak Diego Martin casks selected by Joan Roca. These casks bring to life the generous, reflective and passionate nature of this co-creator. 
  • The notes of allspice and ginger are derived from the Jose Miguel Martin European oak casks selected by Josep Roca which denote of his complexity, warmth and maturity. 
  • Finally, notes of citrus and light vanilla combine from the American oak Vasyma butts and puncheons chosen by pastry chef Jordi Roca which reflect the lively and vivacious aspects of his larger than life personality.

"By collaborating with the Roca brothers we have combined our knowledge of whisky making with their creative culinary expertise.  The result - a single malt that challenges expectations," said The Macallan's Master Whisky Maker Bob Dalgarno. "The driving force behind the Edition Series is the freedom we have to explore different and distinctive casks, some that might not typically be used in other Macallan whiskies.  With wood at the very heart of this series, we very much enjoyed the opportunity to delve into each individual cask, discovering the style and the special influence it can impart on the resulting whisky.  The harmony and balance of Edition No.2 reflects not only the hand selected casks but the relationship that we have been developing with Joan, Josep and Jordi over the last few years – it is powerful collaboration and one that I have loved being part of."  

Josep Roca, Sommelier, El Cellar de Can Roca, continues, "Our shared values and passions with The Macallan are taken a step further with our Edition No. 2 collaboration.  Working with Bob to identity casks which reflect each of us personally was truly a unique and magical experience. We are really proud of this partnership and the exceptional whisky created as a result."

With a suggested retail price of $90 per bottle, The Macallan Edition No. 2 is available now at your local fine spirits purveyor. For more information, visit www.themacallan.com.

Jameson® Gives Ten Artists Resources, Access to Established Musicians and National Stage to Further Ambitions

imageNEW YORK, Dec. 1, 2016 --Jameson Irish Whiskey, whose family motto Sine Metu translates to "Without Fear," is applying this same bold spirit to support musicians across the country with the formation of "Jameson Music." The effort will offer musicians who possess a shared passion for pursuing their dreams a national stage to be seen and heard through live performances, music distribution, financial support and access to established musicians.

The first three artists were hand-selected by legendary musician and Grammy Award winner, Gary Clark Jr., and include Los Angeles-based "HONEYHONEY," Austin-based "Eve and the Exiles" and New York City-based "The London Souls." Each artist is chosen based on their musical ability, sound and demonstration that they embody the Sine Metu philosophy through dedication to their music.

"When it comes to creating great music, being fearless and passionate is something I will always live by and cherish in others," said Grammy award-winning guitarist Gary Clark Jr. "I'm truly excited to be partnering with Jameson Music, which gives artists access to a larger megaphone and helps them take a giant leap forward in getting their music out there."

Jameson Music is also partnering with Refuge Foundation for the Arts, a non-profit organization providing sanctuary for the pursuit of creative expression and community engagement, and The Best Fest, a marketing, promotion and production company dedicated to celebrating the legends of rock and roll through all-star live performances. These partnerships offer the participating artists the opportunity to create, record, perform and distribute their music, rent equipment and cover their studio time. Following individual live performances, Jameson Music will support each ambitious musician's original songs as they continue their journey and rise in the music community.

"At Jameson, we know that it takes a unique courage and resiliency for musicians to pursue a musical career- it's that desire to create something amazing to share with your community, with the world," said Paul DiVito, Vice President Jameson Whiskey, Pernod Ricard USA. "Sine Metu is the drive to pursue your passion, and it's within that spirit that we created Jameson Music, to celebrate and support musicians across the US."

Yards Brewing & Philadelphia Distilling Creating Tough Broad Malt Whiskey

image
From Yards:

We've always wondered what would happen if we tried to distill from one of our base malts. To help us in our experiment, we called on our friends at Philadelphia Distilling. They are leaders in the local craft spirit movement who share the same commitment to quality and community as we do. Plus, it gave us a chance to sample beer and whiskey during "business hours.”

After a few meetings, we settled on a recipe loosely based on
Thomas Jefferson's Tavern Ale and sent it to our Philadelphia Distilling friends to work their magic. They initially distilled in a small still to fine tune the recipe.

After perfecting it, they ran the final product through a Forsyth’s 1500L copper pot still twice before aging the whiskey in a high charred 53-gallon new American oak barrel. The end result is a 90-proof spirit with beer-like flavors and aromas.


Tough Broad Whiskey Logo

Even though this is a high-quality product and we’re dedicated to our craft, we’re also having fun and not taking things too seriously. Tough Broad is a name that roots us where we live. It’s a tribute to Philly's underdog spirit, its history and character.

Look for hints of caramel, toffee, and vanilla, warm spices like cinnamon, and a little bit of wood on the nose. This is where you'll pick up on the malt character from the beer base. Take a sip and notice those sweet, round malty flavors, a spiciness up front then wood dryness at the end. 

Pre-order now by contacting Pete at Philadelphia Distilling. Call (215) 671-0346 x13 or email pete@philadelphiadistilling.com

We only have 300 bottles available from this inaugural batch of Tough Broad! Each 375mL bottle is $45 and there is a limit of two bottles per customer, so we strongly encourage you to pre-order.

Join us for the Tough Broad Pick-Up Party on December 15th from 5-7pm at Philadelphia Distilling's new Fishtown location (25 E. Allen St). You'll receive your pre-ordered whiskey and get a sneak peak inside their new digs. Plus you'll get the chance to chat about the collaboration with both companies' founders while sipping on a complimentary Bluecoat Gin cocktail or Yards beer. Win-win-win-win?

You'll also find find Tough Broad at select Philly bars for a limited time. This list will grow, but start with Olde Bar, Village Whiskey, TIME, Urban Farmer, Charlie Was a Sinner, Whetstone, and Wm. Mulherin’s.
