It has been 60 years to the day since The Queen`s accession and to mark the Diamond Jubilee, John Walker & sons have created something rather special.
The Luxury Diamond Jubilee Whiskey by John Walker & Sons will today become one of the world`s rarest whiskys. Only 60 editions will be released for sale worldwide, with each bottle worth £100,000.
Diamond Jubilee has been maturing for 60 years, it is a specially crafted blend of rare malt and grain Scotch Whiskies.
In strengthening the connection to HM further, the final, traditional step of marrying has been carried out in casks made by the John Walker & Sons coopers using oak provided by kind permission of The Queen from her private Sandringham Estate.
More than 60 (yep, there`s a theme here! 60!) artisans have been involved in producing this very special whisky including QEST scholars.
The Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust is the charitable arm of the Royal Warrant Holders Association that preserves rare craft and conservation skills.
John Walker & Sons have pledged that £1,000,000 of the sales of Diamond Jubilee will be donated to QEST.
Other supreme craftsmanship in evidence here can be seen in the form of Baccarat Crystal. The multi-faceted, diamond-shaped decanter which rests on a crystal stand has six radial legs, each one reflecting a decade of The Queen`s enduring reign.
Hamilton & Inches, Scotland`s leading jeweller and silversmiths have been responsible for a Britannia silver decanter collar set with a half-carat diamond, a John Walker & Sons Ltd Royal Warrant and entwined JW&S monogram to adorn the crystal, and a silver transit stopper.
Cumbria Crystal, the only maker of English full lead crystal, have created a bespoke lead crystal glass, cut with six main facets to mark six decades of The Queen`s reign and with the John Walker & Sons monogram engraved in the base.
The Diamond Jubilee whisky from john Walker & Sons is a truly special whisky, made using the finest ingredients and craftsmanship.
