Royal Salute 38 Year Old Stone of Destiny Blended Scotch
First launched in the year 1953, the Royal Salute expression from Chivas Brothers was developed in honor of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation. Carrying forth the history of a brand that has always enjoyed the preference of the British monarchy, the Royal Salute expressions pulled out all the stops to truly redefine what elegance inside and outside the bottle looked like.
The first Royal Salute expression was developed by Samuel Bronfman. Honoured with an opportunity to attend the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953, Samuel Bronfman, the owner of Seagram’s, that had recently purchased the Chivas Regal brand, intended to present a gift that was suitable for a monarch. He commissioned the first ever bottle of Royal Salute as tribute to the Queen and that was how history was encapsulated within a bottle.
The entire Royal Salute line of whiskies originated in the year of Queen Elizabeth’s coronation, adding some more beautiful, and rare vintage blended scotch malt expressions to its inventory on dates of utmost importance to the British Monarchy.
The Royal Salute Stone of Destiny is a 38-year-old expression of the brand, and is named after a block of Red sandstone that was used ceremonially during the coronations of kings in Scotland and later for the coronations of monarchy in the United Kingdom.
Some of the different vintage expressions that are part of the Royal Salute alongside the Royal Salute Stone of Destiny are the Royal Salute 21 year old marks the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the Royal Salute 32 year old celebrating the Union of the Crown that unified Ireland, Scotland and England under the British Monarchy and the Royal Salute 62 Gun Salute, named after the highest ceremonial honour reserved for the most important Royal occasions.
While the original Royal Salute 21-year-old came in an opaque, blue decanter, the Royal Salute Stone of Destiny comes in a red, opaque decanter. An obvious colour choice seeing as the whisky is named after a red ceremonial sandstone. Although other variants of the bottles are available in Blue and Green decanters too.
From the exquisite blend of select and rare scotch whiskies, to the very decanter it is enclosed within, every aspect of the Royal Salute brand is a product of time, labour and luxurious materials. Handmade from Cornish clay, each bottle of Royal Salute takes nearly 5 to 6 days to finish.
