Royal Salute was first created as a gift for the Coronation of the Queen in 1953, and the Royal Salute gift box has been designed based on the historic 1817 meal that boasted more than 120 exotic dishes to celebrate the brands longstanding connection with the monarchy.
Royal Salute’s signature whisky – Royal Salute 21 Year Old which has been exceptionally crafted and aged for a minimum of two decades – is held within the gift pack, alongside a miniature of the same variant, giving aficionados the chance to enjoy the rare whisky while retaining the distinctive bottle.
Created to celebrate the 21 gun salute – a tradition of firing guns for special royal occasions – the product combines rare malt and grain whiskies aged for a minimum of 21 years, giving connoisseurs a complex and sophisticated drinking experience.
When sampled, individuals are treated to full, deep fruity flavours with a subtle smokiness. The second taste brings in a rich medley of spices and a nuttiness of hazelnuts that have a mouth-filling intensity. This is all contained in festive gift pack created by esteemed wallpaper designer Angela Groundwater.
There are 150,000 Royal Salute Regent Banquet Festive Gift Packs now available worldwide for a RRP of USD $130. This includes Asia and the Middle East (including an animation in Dubai Airport in November), where sales are expected to be particularly strong. It is also on sale at Harrods, priced at £150.
