The Macallan Quest Collection, created exclusively for Global Travel Retail, has finally arrived to London Heathrow to tell the story of the pursuit of the most extraordinary sherry-seasoned oak casks through a series of four newly created single malt whiskies.

The Macallan Quest (40% ABV) pays homage to the entirety of the journey taken by The Macallan to source the best oak across over 20,000 miles, concluding with the selection four different casks types to deliver a soft blend of citrus fruits balanced with vanilla oak.
The Macallan Lumina (41.3% ABV) embraces the direction of the journey where old and new worlds combine over 15,000 miles to find three exact casks types. The result is a bold, zesty whisky with notes of creamy vanilla and wood spice, with ginger firmly at play.
