About Behind The City

The Macallan Single Malt Scotch Whisky is delighted to announce The Macallan Speakeasy, an invite-only pop-up destination where guests have exclusive access to premieres of new works by inspiring artists creating some of today’s most extraordinary cultural experiences.

For three nights in November 2017—November 17th, 18th, and 19th—The Macallan Speakeasy is delighted to present Behind The City: the newest immersive work by Third Rail Projects, critically acclaimed creators of immersive performances including Then She Fell and Ghost Light.

Designed for just two people at a time, Behind The City is Third Rail Projects' most intimate work to date. New York City serves as a stage, setting, and metaphor where couples discover unexpected, dreamlike environments and narratives hidden behind closed doors. Behind The City is a rumination on love, getting lost, and the memories that we imprint upon the city and that it imprints upon us.

About The Macallan

Founded in 1824 in the heart of Speyside, The Macallan was one of the first distilleries in Scotland to be legally licensed. Since then it has built a reputation as one of the world's finest single malt whiskies.

The story of The Macallan is built on the Six Pillars, each influencing the whisky in its own distinct way. From the spiritual home of Easter Elchies House; curiously small stills giving richness to the pure spirit; finest cut from distillation, to exceptional oak casks which account for up to 80% of the final flavor in the whisky; natural color and finally peerless spirit, The Macallan itself.

Wood sits at the heart of The Macallan. The vital contributing influences of Spain, North America and Scotland, together with true mastery, set it apart from the rest. For more information on The Macallan, visit
