Royal Salute Tribute to Honour includes "scarce whiskies" selected from the Royal Salute Vault at Strathisla. Master blender Colin Scott has produced 21 bottles of Tribute to Honour - to mark his 21 years as blender.
Scott said: “Chivas Brothers has a phenomenal archive of high-aged whiskies, some of which, after decades of careful maturation, have acquired a rich intensity and deep concentration of sumptuous characters. It is these very few whiskies which I have personally selected to compose Tribute To Honour – this opulent and rarest of blends.”
The whiskies included in the blend are at least 45 years old and they are presented in a bottle dressed by jeweller to royalty, Garrard.
The black porcelain flagon features 413 white and black diamonds, some of which form the shape of the Sword of State: one of pieces that makes up The Honours of Scotland.
The whisky will be available from September 2011 and the bottles are individually numbered and priced at US$200,000 excluding taxes. One of the 21 bottles will be kept in the Royal Salute Vault.
