Bentley delivers Bentayga Hybrid

  • New bespoke Bentayga Hybrid delivers clean luxury mobility to The Macallan Estate
  • To be charged using 100 per cent REGO-certified renewable energy from a single Scottish wind farm 
  • Bentley Mulliner provides beautiful subtle detailing to the cabin
  • The first of two permanent Bentleys in-residence on the Estate

Bentley has today delivered a new Bentayga Hybrid – complete with bespoke Mulliner details – to The Macallan Estate in Speyside, Scotland. Following the announcement last month of a long-term brand partnership between Bentley Motors and The Macallan, the new hybrid is the first of two permanent estate cars for The Macallan: to be joined by a matching Flying Spur Hybrid. Bentley Mulliner has added beautiful subtle details – themed by The Macallan – to the car: including unique stitching, personalized inlays to wood veneer, and bespoke treadplates and LED welcome lamps.

The commitment from Bentley to provide hybrids on the estate reflects the core ethos of the partnership: that is rooted in a commitment to sustainable transformation together through shared experiences and learning.

The new electrified SUV will be used on-site for exclusive estate experiences, and VIP transfers – all in silent sustainable luxury. It will be charged on-site by newly-installed charging points using 100 per cent Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin (REGO)-certified renewable electricity: sourced entirely from Wardlaw Wood Wind Farm in Scotland.

The car has been specified to seamlessly blend with the colors of The Macallan Estate itself: that is home to a wide and varied natural ecosystem. Exterior paintwork is in Bentley’s rich, dark metallic green: Viridian. And is complemented by the Blackline Specification which applies a gloss-black treatment to all exterior brightware. The car rides on 22-inch Mulliner Driving Specification Black Painted and Bright Machine Wheels.

The interior follows the same concept: Porpoise and Cumbrian Green hides, that are offset with stunning Liquid Amber veneer – a nod to the beautiful hues of The Macallan’s exceptional whiskies. 

Exquisite Details Delivered By Bentley Mulliner

The new Bentayga Hybrid for The Macallan Estate features a suite of subtle, yet intricate, detailing: signifying and reflecting its new home. The content has been delivered via Bentley Mulliner’s Personal Commissioning Guide: that gives customers the option to personalize their Bentley in an almost endless number of ways.

All four seats feature The Macallan’s Easter Elchies House mark: that represents the 18th century Highland Manor home which lies at the heart of The Estate. Delivered in precision embroidery using Cumbrian Green thread to contrast against the Porpoise leather. The front passenger fascia features a “THE MACALLAN” inlay to the wood veneer; while all four treadplates are a unique design – featuring The Macallan’s motifs.

On opening the doors, Bentley’s LED Welcome Lights project the same Easter Elchies House mark to the floor – outlined in pin-sharp white light.

The Macallan Estate

Located amid breath-taking natural landscapes in the heart of Speyside, the 485-acre Macallan Estate is unlike any other distillery in Scotland. The Estate is home to a rich and varied natural ecosystem populated by over 60,000 trees and more than 70 species of wildlife, birds and fish: including seven identified European-protected species – such as red squirrels, badgers, otters, and pine martens.

In 2018, The Macallan opened a new chapter in its history with the launch of its award-winning Speyside distillery. Designed by internationally-acclaimed architects to promote sustainability, the building takes inspiration from the surrounding ancient Scottish hills. Recently, the host for the global launch of the new Flying Spur Hybrid.

A Journey of Electrification

The new Bentayga Hybrid is the first of a series of Bentleys which will take up residence at The Macallan Estate. Later this year, or early next, the Bentayga will be joined by a new Flying Spur Hybrid: specified to match by using the same color palette and personalized details. Bentley will replace these estate cars twice a year – introducing new colors and designs along the way. The new Bentley Hybrids join and enhance the estate fleet of today, that is already 20 per cent electrified – with a target of being 100 per cent electric by 2025.
