The Macallan has put out a new limited-edition gift set for the Double Cask 12 Years Old to celebrate the forthcoming Lunar New Year. Now in its third year, the Year of the Rat package joins the annual series to commemorate the zodiac on the Chinese calendar.
Containing two bottles of The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old, the Lunar New Year gift box and label display traditional knots with an artistic representation of the rat zodiac symbol. The center of the knot is red and gold: traditional colors in Lunar New Year celebrations. A symbol of longevity and eternity, knots have a long history and symbolic meaning within Asian culture.
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old limited edition Lunar New Year pack is available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $140 per pack.
The Macallan Double Cask 12 Years Old has a nose of butterscotch, candied orange and vanilla custard, the company says, before a palate of honey, spices and citrus, with raisins and caramel notes.
