The Macallan single malt and auto manufacturer Bentley Motors have launched a new brand partnership focused on carbon neutrality, the use of sustainable materials and sourcing from local suppliers.

The global agreement will also lead to the development of "distinctive collaborations", "immersive experiences and inspirational products that deliver timeless luxury balanced with a commitment to a more progressive world". It will build on the car manufacturer's Bentley 100 sustainability strategy and the drive to reach carbon neutrality on The Macallan's Speyside estate by 2030.
