The Genesis Limited Edition Whisky was specially developed to celebrate this partnership of masterpiece architecture with world-renowned whisky-making.The project, first announced in 2012, has been in construction since December 2014, with a focus on stunning contemporary architecture. The sophisticated, modern design of the building was selected to match the intricacy of Macallan’s fine, aged whiskies.

The box contains a lithographic print of the distillery on Italian cotton paper produced by Italian paper mill, Magnani. To add an extra touch of class, each copy is signed by Graham Stark, the lead architect on the project.With the limited amount of 2500 bottles produced, only 360 bottles were available for sale at the distillery, each selling at the cost of £495 per bottle.
