The first iteration of Royal Salute came in 1953, to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, and since that time Royal Salute has been enthroned as a Scotch of great distinction, the only one in the world to commence with blends that require a minimum barrel age of 21 years.
Fine whisky improves with age as fine airborne droplets of the precious liquid vanish through evaporation, and Royal Salute has drawn upon the Strahisla's treasure trove of aged Scotch to create masterpieces of the blender's art.
Emboldened by the challenge of making Royal Salute 21, Master Blender Colin Scott has since crafted Royal Salute 38 Years Old, 100 Cask and 62 Gun Salute. Each of these whiskies set new challenges of age and selectivity, allowing Royal Salute to offer whisky connoisseurs an unparalleled range of experience in terms of scent and taste.
The materials from which each bottle is made compliment the quality found within. The Royal Salute flagons are handcrafted from porcelain, granite, crystal and gold, employing finesse and careful attention to the minutest detail.
