Macallan Coronation Description

An incredible collector’s bottling from The Macallan, the third in a range of royal bottlings, with only 1953 sets produced. Macallan Coronation was released in 2013 to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth in 1953, 60 years before the release.

The third in a series of royal bottlings, this edition is comprised of two 35cl bottles of sherry cask matured whiskies: one matured in American oak, featuring Cecil Beaton's iconic 1953 coronation portrait and bottled at 55.7% abv, and the other matured in Spanish oak, decorated with Julian Calder's 2004 portrait of Her Majesty,and bottled at 58.1% abv.

This monumental presentation is quite the masterpiece and is highly sought after the world over. The limited number of 1953 bottles were all snapped up very quickly upon release. A true royal treasure if ever there were.

Each winner of a bottle from Doddie's auction will receive two complimentary Glencairn glasses, branded with the My Name'5 Doddie Foundation logo (pictured on homepage)!

This bottle has been kindly donated by Scott Dickson of the Loch Lomond Group.

Doddie Weir OBE is one of rugby’s most recognizable personalities. He earned 61 caps for Scotland during a successful playing career.

Doddie is now facing his biggest challenge. In June 2017 the Scot revealed he was suffering from Motor Neuron Disease. From the outset, Doddie has been driven to help fellow sufferers and seek ways to further research into this, as yet, incurable disease.

In November 2017 Doddie and his Trustees launched the registered charity My Name’5 Doddie Foundation. Its aims are simple: to raise funds to aid research into the causes of Motor Neuron Disease and investigate potential cures; to make grants to individuals suffering from MND, to enable them to live as fulfilled a life as possible.
