In partnership with leading travel retailer Duty Free Americas, single malt scotch whisky maker The Macallan has unveiled its first-ever shop-in-shop in the Americas Travel Retail channel at Panama Tocumen International Airport, Terminal 2.

The opening marks the latest chapter in the long-term collaboration between Duty Free Americas and the Edrington-owned distiller, following the launch of The Macallan Boutique at New York John F. Kennedy Airport.

The new shop-in-shop allows Tocumen Airport’s travelers to explore The Macallan’s exquisite single malts in a sophisticated setting, showcasing its core range, as well as travel retail exclusive releases and limited-edition expressions.

“We’re delighted to expand our partnership with Edrington and offer The Macallan’s prestigious whiskies at this elegant new shop-in-shop at Tocumen Airport.

“With a shared commitment to delivering excellence and the highest quality whisky, our partnership with The Macallan is moving from strength to strength as DFA continues to play an integral role in The Macallan’s expansion strategy into the Americas,” said Leon Falic, President, Duty Free Americas.

Senior representatives from Duty Free Americas and Edrington celebrated the opening at an official ribbon-cutting ceremony on Monday, 14 August. Attendees included Dov Falic, Duty Free Americas Vice President; Yorvis Campines, Duty Free Americas General Manager Tocumen International Airport and Edrington Americas Travel Retail’s Jennifer Fujitani, Regional Commercial Manager; Anthony Dieppa, Commercial Manager; and Diego Rey, Customer Marketing Manager.

“The opening of The Macallan’s first shop-in-shop in Americas Travel Retail further strengthens our partnership with Duty Free Americas, building on our successful collaboration for The Macallan Boutique at JFK Airport.
