Royal Salute 21 Year Old
Inspired by the 21 Gun Salute, a practice used to commemorate special royal occasions, and commissioned in honour of Queen Elizabeth II’s royal coronation, the 21-year-old expression was the first in the Royal Salute line of luxury blended Scotch whiskies.
From the world of Chivas Brothers, the Royal Salute 21-year-old was the brainchild of Samuel Bronfman. Developed in 1953, this expression was birthed out of Samuel Bronfman’s desire to create a whisky that were fit for a Queen herself.
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%.
