Royal Salute’s Platinum Jubilee Edition

Royal Salute just unveiled an ultra-prestige limited-edition collection in celebration of the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The collection, holding both special significance and symbolism, takes inspiration from the Queen’s personal style, from the designs of her seven brooches engraved on the decanters and box designs, to a colour palette that reflects her famous wardrobe. As for the whisky, which was created by master blender Sandy Hyslop, includes exceptionally high-aged whiskies from no less than seven silent stills and was finished for over two years in Tawny Port casks. The result is a unique and intricately layered blend of red apple notes, blackcurrant and rich toffee. 

The Royal Salute Platinum Jubilee Edition has just been released. Only one set is available in Singapore and it’s all yours for S$195,000. Email at [email protected] to make the purchase.
