The Balmoral Edinburgh Launches New Scotch Club with The Macallan

The Balmoral, a Rocco Forte Hotel in Edinburgh, has unveiled its new Scotch Club in collaboration with The Macallan, offering a personalized membership experience to whisky connoisseurs around the world.

As one of the world’s leading single malt whiskies, renowned for its outstanding quality and dedication to craftsmanship, The Macallan, together with The Balmoral - one of Scotland leading Luxury hotels – have utilised their shared respect for the international Whisky world and hospitality industry, to create an experience like no other.

The elite club offers bottle residence in one of the sought after, personally engraved whisky keeps that don the entrance to SCOTCH, The Balmoral’s world-renowned whisky bar. Keeping the Scottish amber nectar under lock and key, The Balmoral’s expert Whisky Ambassadors will offer Scotch Club members a  whisky concierge service ensuring each visit to the world-renowned whisky bar is bespoke and memorable.

Members of the Scotch Club will be served their selected dram of The Macallan in a Lalique glass,  created by the prestigious French crystal maker, providing a flawless vessel to appreciate the delights of the renowned single malt. Whisky Ambassadors will be on hand to create a cocktail or suggest a perfect serve for your own expression of The Macallan Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

A range of exclusive benefits means members can entertain in style with an annual complimentary whisky tasting for two with exclusive use of the elegant surroundings of SCOTCH for two hours, graciously hosted by a Whisky Ambassador. Members also receive advance invitations to whisky masterclasses and special rates to turn their visit into a vacation in one The Balmoral’s finest suites.

The Balmoral will be accepting 12 members of the Scotch Club this summer, with a waiting list opening for the remaining 23 keeps which will be released later this year. The exclusive offering starts from £710  for a 12-month membership, where guests will be able to access their own bottle of The Macallan  Double Cask 18 Years Old, an icon of the distillery which brings together The Macallan’s unmistakable style with hand-picked sherry seasoned American and European oak casks. The toplevel of Scotch Club membership priced at £17,700 includes a bottle of The Macallan Red Collection 40 Years Old, which sits at the heart of the Macallan’s distinguished limited edition Red Collection. The Red Collection is a range of rare single malt Scotch whiskies created from some of the world’s oldest and rarest casks, to mark the  Macallan’s deep respect for tradition and expertise.
