The world's best restaurant and the world's most expensive whisky have come together in style with 'The Macallan Masters of Taste': an opulent collaboration between the two globally esteemed brands.

Voted number one in Restaurant magazine's World's Best 50 Restaurants, El Cellar de Can Roca in Girona, Spain, is planning the gastronomic event of a lifetime along with The Macallan, the high-end single malt whisky.

Costing £6000, diners will be treated to a specially created fusion of exclusively designed dishes,  influenced by the flavour and character of The Macallan, and a varied range of Macallan whiskies, such as previously unreleased single cask malts, M, the World's most expensive whisky, and the oldest single malt ever released by the distillery.

Ken Grier, Director of the Macallan, said: "We are truly excited and honoured to be collaborating with the Roca brothers to launch this major new initiative. Joan, Josep and Jordi are not only inspirational; they are world-class innovators whose commitment to their craft is exceptional."

Whisky and cuisine have a long-standing connection but never have any two partners come together to really explore what this could, and should, mean. Our collaboration is set to break down classic perceptions of food pairing and enter into a whole new, awe-inspiring world of taste and flavour experience."

Josep Roca of El Celler de Can Roca said: "It is both a pleasure and an exciting challenge to work with The Macallan team. We combine knowledge, effort and hard work to improve in areas that individually we could have never imagined we could achieve, and all that with a strong commitment to innovation."

'The Ultimate Dinner with The Macallan and Roca' comprises of six separate dinners on dates over June and July 2014. Ticket numbers will be limited, and roceeds from the event - along with an additional donation from The Macallan - will to go charity.
