Le Clos celebrates sale of vintage The Macallan 18-Year-Old Vertical collection

Le Clos, the Dubai-based fine wine and luxury spirits retailer, is celebrating another big sale of The Macallan whisky from its store in Dubai Airport.

The purchase of 29 bottles of The Macallan 18-Year-Old Vertical comes just three months after a world record-breaking, USD $500,000 sale of a Macallan Fine and Rare collection in December 2016 at the same store.

This latest collection boasts every vintage of The Macallan 18-Year-Old, also known as ‘The Iconic Macallan’ spanning 1958 to 1986.  Long renowned as one of the finest single malts in the world, this collection and its 29 year history is a testament to the exquisite care taken by The Macallan when crafting their whisky, which is only matured in the most exceptional oak casks.

Maritime & Mercantile International (MMI)-owned Le Clos’ has a well-established reputation for bringing rare and unique products to market and this latest sale is further testament to that fact. Le Clos’ dedication to delivering world-class service and exceptional customer experiences, means they are one of The Macallan’s most trusted partners.

Commenting on the sale, Iain Delaney Chief Operating Officer, MMI said: “This exciting sale really demonstrates Le Clos and Macallan’s strong partnership, as well as Le Clos’ ability to be the trusted retailer to bring rare and collectable products to market.“ It further demonstrates the commitment and enthusiasm of the whole Le Clos team to deliver exceptional products, knowledge, and service to all their customers.”

“This is another stunning success by Le Clos, our trusted partner in bringing The Macallan – the world’s highest value single malt – to collectors from around the world,” says Florence Chevallier, Commercial Manager of Edrington Middle East & Africa Travel Retail. “We look forward to the success to come as our partnership with Le Clos continues to go from strength to strength.”

Macallan 18-Year-Old has become a highly-invested product, thanks to its ability to grow in value, showing some of the greatest returns in value of any single malt.

“The Macallan 18 year old is arguably one of the most iconic whiskies in the world,” explains Peter Allison, Brand Ambassador for The Macallan. “Fully matured in sherry seasoned oak casks, its signature flavour profile of dried fruit and baking spices resonates with connoisseurs that are searching for something special to add to their collection. With an annual release, The Macallan 18 has become highly coveted, and a sale like this by Le Clos illustrates the appeal of The Macallan both within the region, and also internationally. “
