Pernod Ricard has lined up the launch of an extension of its Royal Salute blended Scotch brand. Eternal Reserve is a marriage of whiskies blended from 88 casks using a unique process called Circular Blending, which allows Royal Salute to use the original blend in each subsequent The Eternal Reserve release for decades to come. Each time a new batch is unveiled, half of the blend will be re-casked in the Royal Salute Vault to conserve the precious liquid created in 2015. Thus, the original blend is forever preserved by this perpetual re-circulation – creating a smooth, voluptuous whisky that justifies its original name: uisge beatha (the water of life).
From the carefully crafted whisky, to the new porcelain flagon design, Royal Salute The Eternal Reserve is a dedication to the art of true craftsmanship. With distinctive features, the porcelain flagons have all been created with meaning to combine age-old techniques with a contemporary signature icon, which reflects the Circular Blending process.
Royal Salute The Eternal Reserve will be available from September, priced $180 per 70cl.
