There’s something about the holidays that just seems to bring out the best in us. Aside from the good cheer and bevy of deals and promotions that companies run, one of the best facets of the holidays is the increase in charitable acts companies and people perform. In this case, we have the pride of the Speyside, The Macallan, who is releasing a limited edition tasting kit that will give 100% of its proceeds, which is not a typo, to Food Rescue US, in order to assist in reducing hunger and food waste in America.

The Macallan Harmony Collection: Rich Cacao X Compartés Chocolate Pairing Kit marries the historic pairing of scotch whisky and chocolate to create a mouth-watering gustation experience. A partnership with these two heavy hitters should yield nothing less than a delectable result as The Macallan and Compartés Chocolate are two of the most respected names in their respective forums. The 200-unit limited release set serves as an exercise to create a unique whisky and chocolate pairing tasting set that complements The Macallan Rich Cacao’s tasting notes. Included in the set is a bottle of The Macallan Harmony Collection: Rich Cacao, a 10-piece box of custom-made Compartés Chocolate inspired by the tasting notes of the whisky, and a pairing guide to take you through the tasting journey, as well as two of The Macallan Glencairn glasses. Even better, the kit comes in a gorgeous, fully recyclable, and biodegradable box that’s constructed using sustainable materials like FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified wood, sustainable felt material made from recycled bottles, and North American recycled card stock.

Of course, the real highlight of The Macallan Harmony Collection: Rich Cacao X Compartés Chocolate Pairing Kit is that all of its proceeds will go to Food Rescue US, to help those in need while reducing food waste in our country. The Macallan Harmony Collection: Rich Cacao X Compartés Chocolate Pairing Kit retails for $249, and you can preorder it on ReserveBar and expect it to ship later in December.

Purchase: $249
