If you have been keeping with the car industry, you would probably know that collaborations between automakers aren’t new. For some car brands, they are even pushing the envelope by partnering with companies outside the industry. Bentley is one of these as it reveals a unique whisky bottle design with The Macallan.

The Macallan Horizon

Dubbed The Macallan Horizon, the unique whisky bottle design is a prototype that reflects the two parties’ campaign for growing sustainability. It fuses traditional craftsmanship, recycled materials, and an exclusive horizontal design that sits on a dedicated cradle. Moreover, the bottle doesn’t have a standing base.

It is crafted with sustainable materials

The prototype comes with an extraordinary 180-degree twist, which is said to represent the mastery of space and time achieved by Bentley Motors and The Macallan. Here are the materials used as per the British luxury marque:

  • Recycled copper from the disused, curiously small spirit stills which were located within The Macallan’s former distillery
  • Aluminum recovered from the production of the Continental GT, Flying Spur, and Bentayga at Bentley’s home in Crewe, England
  • Recycled wood from both brands
  • The world’s lowest CO2 leather which is locally sourced in Scotland

In addition, the world’s lowest CO2 leather material is also used in the all-new Bentley Mulliner Batur. It is a limited edition grand tourer based on the Continent GT, built with sustainable interior materials. Only 18 series examples will be produced, with deliveries expected to begin in mid-2023.

“Our prototype for The Macallan Horizon is truly pioneering in both its design and use of materials. It’s a fusion of the sharply defined yet curvaceous Bentley design DNA, The Macallan’s innovation and recycled materials from both iconic British brands,” said Bentley’s Product and Lifestyle Design Manager Chris Cooke.

On his part, The Macallan Global Creative Director Jaume Ferras said, “it [The Macallan Horizon] simply would not be possible without the incomparable craftsmanship and creativity of which The Macallan and Bentley Motors are renowned, and is the embodiment of the uncompromised excellence pursued by The Macallan since 1824.”
