In 1926 Janet ‘Nettie’ Harbinson crafted what would become the most valuable bottle of wine or spirit ever sold at auction. Her spirit still drives everything we do today.
A remarkable figure in The Macallan’s history, in 1918 her beloved husband Alexander, who had been running the distillery at the time, sadly passed. Following his death, she assumed control. Guided by her conviction, dedication, and belief in doing the next right thing, her passion and care for those around her kept the business afloat and helped support the local community.
Our epic short film brings Janet’s story to life, beautifully complemented by an exclusive soundtrack ‘Solstice Kiss’, composed and recorded by the legendary Scottish band, Simple Minds.
