The Macallan unveils Sir Peter Blake: The Macallan Anecdotes of Ages Collection Gallery, an art and whisky exhibition at Raffles Hotel Singapore showcasing its third collaboration with the renown British pop artist.
The Macallan has unveiled Sir Peter Blake: The Macallan Anecdotes of Ages Collection Gallery”, a visual and digital gallery showcase in Raffles Hotel Singapore featuring the incredibly rare The Macallan Anecdotes of Ages Collection.
Macallan’s latest exhibition is also a tribute to pioneering artist Sir Peter Blake – who is considered the father of British pop art – and with whom The Macallan has worked with for over thirty years. Sir Peter is best known for creative works such as co-designing the album sleeve for the Beatle’s Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, as well as album designs for other music greats such as The Who, Eric Clapton, and Oasis, among others.
The Macallan Anecdotes of Ages Collection is a set of thirteen exceptional one-of-a-kind 1967 whiskies. Each of these bottles feature an original Sir Peter Blake collage art on the label, detailing unique stories relating to The Macallan’s history, community, and the beautiful natural landscape that surrounds The Macallan Estate.
The collection is Sir Peter Blake’s third collaboration with The Macallan. Back in 1986 he helped The Macallan design a bespoke label for The Macallan 1926, taking inspiration from events in that era. In 2012 they worked together on “The Macallan Sir Peter Blake Celebrate Eight Decades”, is a highly sought-after limited-edition collaboration whisky set.
Each of the 13 original bottles in the incredibly rare Anecdotes of Ages Collection are hand-blown with an oak stopper, and feature a label signed by Sir Peter Blake. Presented in a handcrafted European oak case incorporating thumbnail photography revealing Sir Peter Blake’s inspirational journey with The Macallan, the expressions are also accompanied by a leather-bound book showcasing all 13 label artworks and corresponding stories, as well as a certificate of authenticity. Of particular note is the Anecdotes of Ages Collection: The Old Farm will be exclusively showcased at Sir Peter Blake: The Macallan Anecdotes of Ages Collection Gallery in Singapore.
