Royal Salute 30 Year Old The Flask Edition

Chivas Brothers have unveiled their second collaboration with London based designer Afroditi Krassa, the limited edition Royal Salute 30 Year Old The Flask Edition.

The Royal Salute 30 Year Old The Flask Edition was specially crafted by Royal Salute’s Director of Blending, Sandy Hyslop, it is a blend of single malts from Speyside’s Longmorn distillery and Strathisla which is the oldest operating distillery in the Highlands, as well as from a number of distilleries no longer in production, which have matured in a mix of American and European oak, they were all brought together and married with grain whisky from the Chivas Brothers Strathclyde distillery.

The specially crafted whisky is presented in an iconic royal blue Royal Salute porcelain flagon and is accompanied by a custom-made porcelain flask complete with funnel and wooden serving tray designed to provide the ultimate whisky drinking experience at home or while travelling. Afroditi Krassa, who created the refined accessories, has taken inspiration from one of the most ancient and elemental of art forms – the crystalline glazing process – and given it a contemporary twist.

Described as having a rich and masculine taste, full flavours of soft ripe pear and sweet toffee apple revealing hints of crème brûlée, vanilla, and butterscotch, with a hint of liquorice and soft ginger in the background.  Initially available exclusively in China, a limited number can now be purchased at select retailers such as Harrods, priced £600.

You will also will find the current Royal Salute core range as well as some previous limited editions available from specialist online whisky shops such as Master of Malt
