Royal Salute, owned by Pernod Ricard have announced the Royal Salute Royal Wedding Edition, a special expression created in honour of the happy occasion. Presented in a Darlington crystal decanter, Royal Salute Royal Wedding Edition is a blend of some of the oldest and rarest whiskies from the brand’s collection. The edition blends malt whiskies aged, 55, 36 and 33 years old, with the latter two corresponding to the current ages of the royal couple.
In homage to Markle’s American heritage the blend has been fully matured in American Oak casks a first for the brand.
Just 70 bottles of this special edition have been released with each engraved and individually numbered. The Dartington crystal decanters have been skilfully decorated with roses (the Queen’s favourite flower), thistles (significant to Scotland) and barley (representing Scottish whiskey), as well as daffodils and California poppies represent the couple themselves.
“Since its creation in 1953 in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, Royal Salute has enjoyed a long and proud heritage of celebrating historic British royal events,” said brand ambassador The Duke of Argyll. “We believe this remarkable new blend is a perfect tribute to such a special moment in history.”
