Who Else wants to Buy the Macallan x Urwerk Flask?
This Macallan x Urwerk flask is the most luxurious whiskey carrier with a fancy price tag of $2,440. Would you buy it?
Single malt Scotch brand The Macallan, owned by Edrington Group, has teamed up with Swiss watchmaker Urwerk to make a luxury flask made from titanium, aluminum, and stainless steel.
Composed of 156 parts, the flask is “loaded with intriguing features”, according to the company.
Priced at $2,440 this whiskey carrier features two titanium tanks that can hold two different whisky expressions at once, and a mouthpiece made from stainless steel that switches between the tanks.
Plus, The Flask 2 has cask indicators that show the whisky’s age and wood type, ‘winglets’ that create a stand for the flask, and a cap with hidden ‘ball clinkers’ that hold the cap open when pouring.
“Our latest collaboration with pioneering watchmaker Urwerk has created a remarkable flask beyond imagination,” said Ken Grier, creative director of The Macallan.
“Just like time is fundamental in the making of The Macallan as each bottle distills and captures a moment in time, Urwerk uses the same mastered process to create its own vision of time.”
Martin Friel, Urwerk co-founder and chief designer, added: “I knew the flask had to be exciting and daring, while also providing pleasure and I envisioned an object with complex simplicity, just like a good whisky – a flask mirroring its content where people can take it in their hand and then start their journey of discovery.”
The flask comes in a limited edition of only 500 pieces, specially created for global release and available directly through the Macallan’s website. In 2013, The Macallan released a £600 hip flask in collaboration with lifestyle brand Oakley.
“We created a flask for people that share the same values, you know, that are as crazy as we are,” Urwerk’s founding partner and chief designer Martin Frei said.
“When we were offered the opportunity to collaborate on this adventure we immediately said yes to the challenge,” adds Martin Frei, Urmerk co-founder and chief designer.
