The Macallan has unveiled part 6 of its Masters of Photography series, a partnership between the scotch brand and celebrated photographers that has included projects with Annie Liebowitz and Mario Testino, among others. This year’s release features the work of Steven Klein, a frequent collaborator with Madonna, Lady Gaga, and other musicians.

Klein explored the influence of time on Macallan through 10 still images and a short interactive film, which you can experience here. The 53.5% ABV whisky, created by Macallan’s master whisky maker Bob Dalgarno, includes some influence from Rioja wine casks, as well as peat and smoke flavors that echo the industrial setting of Klein’s film.

There are 1,000 bottles of The Macallan Masters of Photography: Steven Klein Edition available worldwide, with 100 of them coming to the U.S. Each bottle is packaged with one of ten different prints, signed by Klein, as well as custom barware tools inspired by celebrated chefs the Roca brothers of El Celler de Can Roca in Spain. As with past editions, this one isn’t cheap—around $2,995. If you want to get your hands on one, email inquiries.us@themacallan.com.
