Limited Macallan is picture perfect

Macallan Fine Oak 30 Year Old single malt will be released in a limited-edition run of 1,000 bottles featuring photos by renowned Scots photographer Rankin.

Rankin, who goes by the single name, shot a selection of Polaroid pictures at the Macallan Speyside estate which are to be reproduced on to the bottle labels. The special bottles will be sold in black leather boxes, alongside the original Polaroid pictures.

"This project is very special to me for two reasons," Rankin told the daily newspaper The Scotsman. "Firstly, I've been able to come back to the country of my birth and portray its beauty through one of the most ambitious projects I've ever attempted. The second reason is that this collection marks the full stop after Polaroid, as we head into the digital age."

Polaroid announced earlier this year that it is to discontinue production of its instant film.
