One of Edinburgh's finest hotels, The Balmoral, has announced that it's the first in Scotland to acquire The Macallan Horizon whisky bottle. 

The bottle was created by two prestigious brands: The Macallan, renowned for exceptional single malt whisky, and Bentley Motors, famed for extraordinary automotive design.

To commemorate this exclusive acquisition, The Balmoral (A Rocco Forte Hotel) is offering a one-of-a-kind £100,000 ‘Horizon Whisky Experience’ starting in August 2024. 

This luxurious package includes ownership of the world’s first horizontal whisky bottle, personalised membership to the hotel’s exclusive SCOTCH Club, a two-night stay in the Presidential Suite, the Scone & Crombie, and a private tour with an overnight stay at The Macallan Estate.
