Toast the Royal Wedding with Royal Salute’s Very Special Commemorative Blend
May 17, 2018
It seems my invitation to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Royal Wedding got lost in the post… But the next best thing to land in my email inbox was a very fancy invitation to celebrate the launch of Royal Salute’s commemorative blend in tribute to the big event, at Rosewood London.
With Royal Salute’s rich history and long legacy of celebrating important British royal milestones, only 70 of the exquisite blend have been produced – with bottle number one already having been sent to the royal couple!
Blending together some of the oldest and rarest whiskies from the Royal Salute vaults, this particular celebration brought about a Royal Salute first – never before have their whiskies been fully matured in 100% American oak casks in a wonderful tribute to Meghan’s heritage.
For a liquid as special as this one (and with so few being made), the bottles are also exceptional. Each stunning Dartington Crystal decanter has been engraved with its unique batch number and etched with roses, thistles and barley and because each bottle has been hand blown and engraved, no two are the same.
With sweet and luxurious notes of vanilla and fudge on the nose, along with mandarin orange and a hint of spiced cinnamon, The Royal Salute Royal Wedding Edition is well-balanced, rich and fruity to taste, with tropical flavours, dark chocolate and ginger and a long, sweet, vanilla finish.
The luxury box and decanter set is available at selected retailers and through special enquiry, priced at $10,000 per bottle. Whisky connoiseurs can email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. There really is no better way to raise a toast to the fabulous couple.
