Macallan just opened a brand new, state-of-the-art $200 million distillery. How did Macallan choose to celebrate? By releasing the oldest single malt they’ve ever bottled–a 72 year old expression that comes in The Genesis Decanter by Lalique and is presented in a wood display case. It’s worth nothing that both the crystal decanter and the case were custom made to mirror the lines of the distillery and each is more opulent and likely more pricey than anything else on our bar cart. In terms of the whiskey itself, Macallan describes it (sadly, no one would sign off on us expensing a pour) as having “aromas of peat, lemons, green apples, vanilla, raisins and ginger, along with tastes of wood spice, peat smoke and citrus, and a finish of rich fruit and oak.” Given what some of the rarer bourbons and whiskies are going for on the secondary market these days–and the fact that a single pour costs $12,000 at a Beverly Hills bar–if you weren’t able to secure one of the 600 bottles at retail, expect to pay well into the six figures if you absolutely have to have The Macallan 72 Years Old in Lalique.

Xeric watches have always been bold, unique and stylish, but their newest watch is absolutely otherworldly. Xeric teamed up with NASA to create watches for the 50th Anniversary of Apollo 11. The dial features a star map of the constellations surrounding Trappist-1. The grill references the ISS cupola window to give you the sense of looking out into space. The dome crystal is Hesalite, a material originally developed by NASA in the ’60s. Time is displayed with planetary hour and minute hands and stars on the sweeping seconds hand. It’s like wearing space on your wrist.
