Bentley and the Macallan Introduce The Macallan Horizon


A unique prototype of their first product collaboration unveiled

September 9, 2022

Bentley Motors and The Macallan Scotch whisky distillery launched their global brand partnership in July 2021. Forged from extensive joint development between the two companies, this prototype encapsulates their shared ambition to build a sustainable future from the rich heritage of both brands.

The unique design defies the traditional vertical aesthetic of a whisky bottle and reflects the horizontal trajectory of a car, pushing the boundaries and the art of the possible. The vessel is cased in an intricate, 3D glass 'twist' crafted from a suite of elegant, sustainable materials. These materials include recycled copper from the disused spirit stills which had been stored in The Macallan’s former distillery; aluminium recovered from the production of the Continental GT, Flying Spur and Bentayga at Bentley’s home in Crewe, England; and recycled wood from both brands.

Jaume Ferras, Global Creative Director for The Macallan, commented: ‘Working with Bentley Motors has inspired us to see things from a different perspective. I am incredibly proud of the revolutionary design we’ve created for The Macallan Horizon and the unique sustainable materials we're incorporating into its production as part of our commitment to a better world. It is the embodiment of the uncompromised excellence pursued by The Macallan since 1824.’
