Described as a ‘powerful, sophisticated and opulent’ blend, the rich and lavish taste of the Royal Salute 21-Year-Old is achieved by marrying the rarest and the most carefully selected single malt and grain whiskies to produce a taste that defined the very meaning of a luxury whisky.
Bottled in a Sapphire coloured porcelain Wade decanter made of Cornish clay, it takes nearly 5-6 days to produce, the Royal Salute 21-year-old was not only a landmark in whisky making, but art itself.
Commissioned to embody every aspect of royalty, the Royal Salute 21-year-old is the quintessential definition of a rich history, inside and out. The classic Wade decanter is also available in two other colours; Emerald and Ruby.
The Royal Salute 21-Year-Old is golden amber in colour, and has an alcohol content of 40%.
