“By marrying together some of the oldest and rarest whiskies in our portfolio, and ageing them in American oak casks, I have created a harmonious blend to match the coming together of such an iconic couple.” – Sandy Hyslop, Royal Salute Master Blender
A Collectors Item
Blending is the cornerstone of Royal Salute and for this special release they blended more than just whisky. Adopting a number of influences that reflect the Royal couple, thought has gone into every aspect of its presentation. As a tribute to Meghan’s American heritage, this unique blend has been fully matured in 100% American oak casks. A first for Royal Salute. Resulting in a lasting and creamy finish that complements its sweetness on the nose. The Royal Wedding Edition whisky features a blend of 55 year old, 36 year old and 33 year old whiskies that only Royal Salute are lucky enough to have within their archive. The sweet nose boasts notes of creamy vanilla followed by burnt mandarin and spicy cinnamon.
A Royal Presentation
The elegant bottle is hand-blown in blue crystal by Dartington Crystal. It features etchings of roses, thistles and barley, painted in silver. Additionally, the presentation box has been hand-crafted in American oak. And within, its adorned with flowers and foliage as a subtle nod to this Spring wedding. Daffodils celebrate Harry’s title as Prince Henry of Wales while California poppies feature in tribute to Meghan’s birth place of Los Angeles. Each bottle is engraved with a unique number, with 1 of 70 being given to Harry and Meghan.
“The marriage of HRH, Prince Henry of Wales, to Ms Meghan Markle, will be one of the most exciting events this century. Since its creation in 1953 in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, Royal Salute has enjoyed a long and proud heritage of celebrating historic British royal events – and we believe this remarkable new blend is a perfect tribute to such a special moment in history.” – Royal Salute Brand Ambassador, His Grace The Duke of Argyll
