The ‘King of Whisky’, Royal Salute, has unveiled a new limited edition festive Gift Pack for this year’s festive season.
The Royal Salute 21 Year Old Masquerade Ball Festive Gift Pack is the latest addition to the brand’s annual series, and is inspired by the famed royal Masquerade Balls which were held at the Ranelagh Pleasure Gardens in London’s Chelsea, an iconic venue which opened back in 1746.
On sale now for £160, it has been created in partnership with esteemed British illustrator Phil Wheeler who has depicted the Masquerade Balls in stunning colour and detail. The toast of high society in the 18th Century, these events were evenings like no other and attended by royal guests, dukes and wealthy merchants, who would revel under the mysterious guise of anonymity – their masks. Phil, who is renowned for his colourful and exuberant work, has used his signature style to bring these spectacular scenes to life in an elegant design with shades of blue, pink and purple alongside Royal Salute’s signature gold touch.
The limited edition features an intricate laser cut lid and a collector’s edition gift box that surrounds the jewel in Royal Salute’s crown: its signature 21-Year-Old whisky, in all its rich, round and robust glory, alongside a miniature version for collectors. Created by Royal Salute Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop, the expression is exceptionally crafted and aged for a minimum of 21 years, resulting in a standout whisky fit for royalty.
Royal Salute Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop, said: “Christmas and Chinese New Year are times of ultimate celebration and indulgence so we wanted to create a limited edition set that reflected this. What better way to toast the festive season than with Royal Salute 21 Year Old, especially when it comes housed in a gift pack this special. It’s the ultimate gift for whisky aficionados and a unique chance to enjoy this rare and special expression that will no doubt become a cherished collector’s item and live on long after the festive season.”
Royal Salute 21-Year-Old whisky offers powerful aromas of sweet pears and citrus fruits, which are balanced with the full fragrance of autumn flowers. The taste combines full and deep fruity flavours with a subtle smokiness.
