Macallan The Harmony Collection / Fine Cacao
Released in May 2022, Fine Cacao is part of the first edition in an annual series from Macallan titled The Harmony Collection. The project is spearheaded by the distilleries efforts to focus on sustainability.
Fine Cacao is a collaboration between Macallan Whisky Maker Polly Logan and pastry chef Jordi Roca of three Michelin star restaurant El Celler de Can Roca. Jordi is also the owner of the famed chocolate boutique, Casa Cacao and in 2018 was voted "World's Best Pastry Chef" by Restaurant Magazine. Working alongside Jordi, Polly studied the techniques of chocolate making and would go on to create this whisky as a perfect pairing for high-quality chocolate. The whisky has been 100% aged in a ex-Sherry American and European oak casks.
By focusing on sustainable packaging, Fine Cacao is presented in a 100% recyclable and biodegradable box and the bottle features labels that have also been recycled.
