pays homage to the exceptional with the
launch of the rarest crafted whisky:
Tribute To Honour
The world’s only exclusively prestige
Scotch whisky range, Royal Salute, has
crafted a blend so rare that only one
man in the world has tasted it – creator
and Master Blender, Colin Scott.
‘Tribute to Honour’ has been introduced
to pay homage to the oldest crown jewels
of the British Isles: The Honours of
Scotland. The narrative of the Honours
comprises glorious legends and intrigue
and remains a powerful and inscrutable
ode to Scottish history. Royal Salute
Tribute to Honour marks a historical
pinnacle in whisky making.
The most exquisite, precious and scarce
whiskies used to create Tribute To
Honour, have been carefully selected
from the Royal Salute Vault at
Strathisla. Expertly blended by Colin
Scott, just 21 bottles of Tribute to
Honour have been created and also mark
the pinnacle of Colin’s 21 years of
expertise in blending.
Explains Colin, "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."
Fittingly, only the finest aged whiskies
– at least 45 years old – are presented
in the spectacular bejeweled bottle,
dressed by Garrard in flawless diamonds
and shimmering gold.
As the world’s oldest jeweller to
royalty Garrard has embellished the
Royal Salute Tribute to Honour flagon -
hand cast and perfected, black porcelain
– with 413 flawless white and black
diamonds. Some of these exquisite jewels
form the shape of the Sword of State:
one of the trilogy of treasures that are
The Honours of Scotland. Set in gold and
silver, 22 carats of gemstone adorn the
decorative collar and stunning flagon’s
visage. Golden lions sit either side of
the diamond encrusted sword.
Craftsman at Garrard have spent days
perfecting each flagon by hand. The
prestigious jeweller has served six
successive British monarchs and pays
tribute to the ancient Scottish Sword of
State as its landmark.
