The Macallan & Compartés Create a Limited Edition Whisky and Chocolate Pairing Tasting Set

This month, The Macallan has unveiled The Macallan Harmony Collection Rich Cacao, the first limited edition whisky in an innovative new series of single malts that will see the brand progress its journey towards sustainable packaging.

To create the first edition in this new limited annual release series, The Macallan Whisky Maker Polly Logan embarked on a unique journey to Girona, Spain, where she immersed herself in the world of chocolate, exploring the chocolate-making process and uncovering the distinctive flavor profiles. Polly collaborated with world-renowned pastry chef, Jordi Roca, the youngest of the acclaimed Roca brothers of El Celler de Can Roca, with whom The Macallan has a long-standing relationship.

As part of the exploration, she visited Jordi’s famed chocolate factory, Casa Cacao in Girona and she also spent time with master chocolatier, Damian Allsop.

Through this unique experience, Polly drew inspiration from the duo’s passion, knowledge and creativity to create The Macallan Harmony Collection Rich Cacao.

In celebration of the worlds of whisky and chocolate coming together, The Macallan Scotch Whisky has collaborated with the nation’s leading luxury handmade gourmet chocolate brand, Compartés Chocolate and CEO Jonathan Grahm who is known as one of the youngest and most prolific artisan chocolatiers in the country, to create a unique whisky and chocolate pairing tasting set.

This limited edition tasting set (only 200 available for purchase) will highlight The Macallan Harmony Collection Rich Cacao and Compartés chocolates that compliment the whisky’s tasting notes for a multi-sensory experience. The tasting set will be available starting on November 8th, 2021 for pre-order exclusively on ReserveBar.
