Chivas Brothers created the rather special Royal Salute Whisky in 1953 to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. The partnership between Royalty and this luxury whisky has continued right up to present day.
The Royal Salute Whisky has had four guardians, four master blenders, since the Coronation. These four men, trained in the art of tasting, studying and immersed in the craft of whisky making have ensured The Royal Salute is as special today as it was back then.
Royal Salute is the only permanent whisky range aged 21 years and older, making it the world`s leading luxury whisky range. Uniquely 62 Gun Salute is the only permanent blend to include whiskies aged 40 years and above.
The Royal Salute 62 Gun Salute is a tribute to these four master blenders, embracing years of expertise, passion and pride for creating the ultimate in luxury Scotch.
Due to the handcrafted nature of the decanter and the time it takes to produce each individual bottle, Royal Salute 62 Gun Salute will go on sale throughout the world from January 2011
62 Gun Salute Whisky is also a tribute to the Queen`s Birthday celebrations. Continuing the tradition of honouring the monarch by adopting the name `62 Gun Salute` is a lovely touch, completely in keeping with this luxury brand.
The new blend will be released in limited supply due to its extraordinary rarity and presented in an exquisite hand crafted crystal decanter, decorated in 24 carat gold and crowned with a cut crystal stopper. The finest looking whisky bottle is filled with what could be the finest whisky!
Naturally such a prestigious whisky will be very rare and limited in supply. However, it will be made available for exclusive outlets world-wide on a permanent basis, as the permanent pinnacle of the ultimate in Scotch whisky.
It will go on sale towards the end of 2010 priced at $2,200. The pinnacle of luxury whisky, 62 Gun Salute is the culmination of four generations of whisky craftsmanship and is uniquely the only permanent blend to include whiskies aged for a minimum of 40 years.
Royal Salute 62 Gun Salute joins a highly acclaimed blended whisky portfolio. Royal Salute is currently the No. 1 luxury whisky in the world recording double digit growth over the last five years. The portfolio has also received several prestigious awards including the 2009 IWSC Gold Best in Class for Royal Salute 100 Cask and Gold at the 2009 Scotch Whisky Masters for Royal Salute 21 Year Old. It was also named Best Luxury Spirits Brand in the Hurun Report`s `Best of the Best 2009` Survey which canvassed the opinions of 345 Chinese U.S Dollar Millionaires.
