A whisky distiller called Royal Salute has created the Royal Wedding Edition in honor of the happy occasion – you guess – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s wedding.
The Royal Salute Royal Wedding Edition is a blended Scotch made specifically for the purpose of celebrating today’s royal celebration.
The whisky, bottled at 54.5% ABV, is encased in a Dartington Crystal decanter, and in honor of the bride, American actress Meghan Markle, the blend has been fully matured in 100% American oak casks, a first for Royal Salute.
Crafted by Chivas Brothers’ Master Blender Sandy Hyslop, the release includes whisky from Glen Keith, Longmorn, Strathisla, Alt A Bhainne, Braeval, Strathclyde and Caperdonich, which has now closed.
Royal Salute created just 70 of the limited edition bottles, which are indeed available to the public, with a price tag of $10,000 each.
The special release continues Royal Salute’s tradition of commemorating the British Monarchy. The brand first launched in 1953 with the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.
