At the end of the year, Macallan released the Edition No. 5 to the market. The Edition No. 5 was manufactured in collaboration with the Pantone Color Institute, a New Jersey company. This Limited Edition draws attention to the natural color of the Whisky. All Macallan's are bottled without coloring. Matured exclusively in barrels made of American oak. Macallan's Master Distiller carefully selects suitable barrels by hand.
