The inspiration for The Macallan’s Masters of Photography began when Ken Grier paid a visit to Château Mouton Rothschild. Walking through its wine museum, the creative director noticed how each vintage had its label illustrated by an artist, prompting him to explore the same with whisky and photography.
It began with Rankin, followed by Annie Leibovitz and Elliott Erwitt, and in this sixth instalment, Steven Klein is introduced. Recognised for his dark and provocative work, Klein produced a series of pictures and a short film capturing Thom Browne-clad models suspended in time.
The collection also includes a horse head bottle stopper, bar tools made by the Roca brothers and to mirror the film, a rich, dark and peated whisky seasoned in Rioja casks. It’s never been done before, and probably never again. There are only 1,000 bottles worldwide so get it while you can.
