Royal Salute Royal Wedding Edition
Royal Salute // Scotland
This rare bottling was created to commemorate the wedding of HRH Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle. Created by master blender Sandy Hyslop, Royal Wedding marries some of the oldest and most rare casks in the brand’s portfolio, including 55, 36 and 33-year-old whiskies. The whiskies come from Longmore, Strathisla, Glen Keith and Strathclyde distilleries and were selected because they were entirely aged in 100% American oak, a homage to the bride’s American heritage. The decanter, crafted by Dartington, is adorned with roses, thistles, barley, daffodils and California poppies, and is presented in an American oak box. Bottled at cask strength of 54.5%, there were 70 decanters created and each one is hand-engraved and numbered. The #1 bottle will go to Kensington Palace, the couple’s official residence.
BlendedComprised of both single malt(s) and single grain(s) often from many different distilleries; if Scotch or Irish must be aged for at least three years in oak barrels; Irish may include single pot still whiskey in the blend.
