We’re raising a glass to trail-blazing entrepreneur Julie Macklowe and her latest venture, a bold single malt whisky. Appropriately named The Macklowe, the $1,500 whisky is an ideal gift for the mixologist or whisky collector in your life, with only 237 bottles made worldwide. Adding to the exclusivity, the luxury whisky is impossible to replicate, bottled from one of Macklowe’s personal casks in her extraordinary collection—Cask Nº61.
The Macklowe is made using the alcohol brand founder’s unique proprietary distillation method, she calls the “Ferrari of single malts.”
Open a bottle of The Macklowe and take in the intense aroma of sweet oak, vanilla, Seville bitter orange peels, honey, marzipan and caramel. Not only is the fragrance delightful, but the flavor is deliciously full-bodied, with an outstanding sweetly-spiced depth. When you taste The Macklowe, you’ll enjoy notes of gingerbread, maple syrup, citrus, spice and a creamy maltiness. At 46% alcohol content, this single-malt whisky has a complex flavor that lingers after each taste.
The Macklowe is made using the alcohol brand founder’s unique proprietary distillation method, she calls the “Ferrari of single malts.” The luxury whisky is packaged in hand-painted showcase bottles that have a distinctive flask design, a nod to Macklowe’s flask that was always at her side for events in high-finance. Macklowe believes that drinking whisky should be genderless, and her vision for her drink is that it will be a true luxury for everyone who enjoys it.
“Always drink what you like, not what you are told to like,” says Macklowe. She recommends the whisky with a few drops of water, or in a Macklowe Manhattan mixed with sweet and dry Vermouth, a few dashes of aromatic bitters and a cherry garnish.
