The Macallan Sir Peter Blake: An Estate, A Community and A Distillery has arrived at MoM Towers and we’ve ensured that you’ve got a fair shake at getting your hands on a bottle.
The Macallan is a distillery that loves to release a swanky whisky. When the Speyside producer isn’t breaking records with expressions distilled decades ago, it’s launching new rare bottlings to get us all excited.
One of those recent releases, The Macallan Sir Peter Blake: An Estate, A Community and A Distillery, has found its way onto our site. You might recall hearing about this one in The Nightcap. You see, legendary artist Sir Peter Blake nipped up Speyside way to help create The Anecdotes of Ages Collection. The collaboration was his third with The Macallan in a relationship that has spanned almost four decades. So the whisky giants decided to honour Blake and commemorate his visit to The Macallan Estate with some booze.
The brand says An Estate, A Community, and A Distillery tells the story of some of the “colourful characters from The Macallan’s past and present”. It features a label digitally designed by Sir Peter himself. The Macallan lead whisky maker, Sarah Burgess, has a made dram that’s said to be rich in dried fruits and spices with hints of orange, clove, cracked black pepper and treacle.
It’s lottery time!
It all sounds rather lovely. But this is The Macallan. This means this super fancy bottle is highly desirable. And seeing as we only have 40 bottles available, we’ve decided that a bottle lottery is the best way to sell this spirit.
Those of you who’ve seen any of our previous lotteries will know we do this because we want to be as fair as possible. As always, our sweary and handy post from 2016 will shed some more light on our policy.
We will approach this lottery the same as we have before. The action will be taking place on the product page. The timeline is below. The bottle will feature the message “I hereby swear not to sell this bottle – but to drink it with my chums. May my taste-buds and olfactory bulb shrivel and die if I should break my word.” For those of you who are lucky enough to win, dispatch will take place on the week beginning 19 April.

When you’re ready to enter, simply head here. Let’s be 100% clear on this. If you want to get your hands on a bottle, you need to click on this link and go to the product page. Don’t comment on this blog. Don’t try and send us a smoke signal. And definitely do not email Sir Peter Blake. We’re pretty sure he gets his mail via raven anyway.
Also to note, the clocks change in the UK this weekend. So the times are initially in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Then British summer time (BST) officially starts at 1 am on Sunday 28 March. When the clocks go forward an hour to 2 am. Clear? Just nod along. Nobody actually understands how time works. It’s basically made up. Like unicorns or the economy.
Bottle Lottery: Friday 26 March 12:00 – Tuesday 30 March 13:00
