The Edition series from The Macallan highlights "the celebration of The Macallan's whisky making heritage." Edition No. 5 celebrates the 100% natural color of The Macallan whiskies. In view of that, the brand has collaborated with color experts at the Pantone Color Institute to create The Macallan Edition Purple which adorns its packaging and label. The single malt whisky itself was aged entirely in sherry-seasoned American oak barrels of varying sizes. The breakdown is as follows (proper names refer to sherry cooperages): first-fill ex-bourbon, refill hogsheads & butts, first-fill Tevasa hogsheads & butts, first-fill Vasyma butts, and first-fill Hudosa hogsheads & butts. Available as of September 2019.
