Macallan Master Of Photography: 5 Martio Testino 750ml + 6 x 50ml
Masters of Photography: Macallan Mario Testino Edition brought together six different casks to showcase the complexity of The Macallan. Each of these six perfect whiskies is the definitive representation of one of the six pillars. They each have their own character, flavor, and aroma, which when brought together create the perfect single malt with unparalleled depth, darkness, and diversity.
Each of the 1,000 editions comprised a different Mario Testino print capturing The Six Pillars, an exclusive photo-archival booklet featuring a total of 20 images shot by Testino during the process, one bottle of the single malt whisky, and six miniatures from each of the selected six casks.
MARIO TESTINO’S CONNECTION WITH HIS SUBJECTS, WHETHER CELEBRITIES OR ROYALTY, HAS LEFT A LASTING IMPACT ON THE WORLD OF PHOTOGRAPHY.
In 2014, he directed his lens towards The Macallan in the fifth chapter of The Masters of Photography.
As one of the world’s most prolific portrait and fashion photographers, Testino brought the foundation stones of The Macallan to life, personifying and characterizing them in his inimitable and luxurious style.
The setting for the shoot was The China Club in Beijing, in a former palace near the Forbidden City and Tian’anmen Square.
Testino’s vision, inspired by this location, shone through every detail of the setting, casting, and atmosphere. By bringing together a group of distinct characters, Testino captured the spirit of the ultimate party. Every character was cast on the basis of their visual qualities, each echoing one of The Macallan’s Six Pillars.
Testino’s signature style and renowned ability to create an atmosphere were celebrated in this fifth chapter, and the photographs showcase the vibrancy and luxury of The Macallan, infused with subtle eclecticism and cultural allusions.
