$39,000 whisky released for the Coronation of King Charles III

British Scotch whisky producers, Royal Salute, has announced the release of a limited edition to mark the Coronation of King Charles III.

Since its inception, Royal Salute has honoured the British Monarchy and marked significant milestones with unique expressions that represent and embody a moment in history.

Expertly crafted by Royal Salute Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop, the expression is a blend of more than 53 rare malt and grain whiskies bottled as cask strength in homage to the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953.

Boundless Brand Design drew inspiration from London’s home of Royal Milestones, Westminster Abbey, crafting a chiselled depiction of its architecture, presented on the front of the wooden box – a tribute to the home of Coronation ceremonies since 1066.

The inside of the box features illustrations of crests, jewels, and flowers significant to each of the countries forming Great Britain, as well as being synonymous with King Charles III himself, symbolising the unity under the Crown and enduring solidarity between the nations.

The whisky is housed in a Dartington Crystal decanter, tinted in a deep sapphire blue hue, reminiscent of the precious stones set within the Imperial State Crown.

A bespoke metal collar was added to the bottle bevelled with the sceptre and sword from the Crown Jewels, the ultimate Royal seal.

Only 500 bottles of the Royal Salute Coronation of King Charles III Edition are available at selected specialist retailers for RRP $25,000 USD.
