Bentley and The Macallan announced the continuation of their partnership born in July 2021 amid the sea of cars that graced the Monterey Car Week and Pebble Beach. It also comes with another product called The Macallan Horizon.
The two companies previously collaborated on a custom Viridian Bentley Bentayga Hybrid that visited the Macallan Estate in Scotland. This time, a recycled whisky bottle has been introduced, which “encapsulates a shared ambition of building a sustainable future from the rich heritage of both brands.”

The Macallan Horizon is a limited edition single malt whisky packaged in a handcrafted glass bottle that is said to be unlike any other bottle of whisky in history. It has a twisted design that represents “the mastery of space and time achieved by The Macallan and Bentley Motors in creating the prototype,” according to the release.
The bottle is then encased within a structure made of repurposed or ethically sourced materials. Copper from disused small spirit stills at The Macallan’s former distillery; aluminium recovered from the manufacture of the Continental GT, Flying Spur, and Bentayga in Crewe; and recycled wood from both brands are among them.
The encapsulation also made use of the world’s lowest CO2 leather, sourced from Scotland. It’s also used in the Bentley Mulliner Batur, which was recently unveiled at Pebble Beach. The bottle will also contain The Macallan single malt whisky, which will have its own recycling and sustainability story.
While most whisky bottles stand vertically, The Macallan Horizon stands horizontally (hence the name) on a purpose-built cradle, representing the horizontal position of a car.
The price of The Macallan Horizon has yet to be announced by the companies. The limited edition bottle will be available starting in the summer of 2023.
