Mario Testino and The Macallan Team Up for Masters of Photography Series

You can already consider Mario Testino a master of photography, but The Macallan is making it official. The spirits brand has tapped Testino for its Masters of Photography series, in which the label gets a famous photographer to put his or her touch on its famous Scotch whisky boxes.

The Macallan is producing 1,000 boxes of the Testino-approved Six Pillars Scotch whisky, all of which will feature an exclusive image taken by the photographer at The China Club in Beijing. The sleek, black box (also designed by Testino) has a nook for a large bottle of Scotch whisky, a photo booklet with 20 of Testino’s images as well as a pull-out side drawer filled with six miniature bottles of booze. The photos accompanying the drink collection capture a feeling of glamour, luxury and good ol’ fashioned carefree-ness.

Past Masters of Photography include Annie Leibovitz and Rankin, so Testino is in good company. The box will set you back about $3,500, so we hope you’re a really dedicated Testino (or Scotch whisky) fan.
