Whisky lovers will enjoy the ultimate weekend of tasting this fall, courtesy of Royal Salute. From November 13 through 15, an elite few can step inside the world of rare Scotch whisky and exclusive tastings of Royal Salute, which has just 21 bottles of its bejeweled and numbered whisky currently in circulation.
Created originally by Chivas Brothers in 1953, and presented as a tribute to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II upon her coronation, Royal Salute has, since its birth, represented the pinnacle of Scotch whisky.
Blended from the most exquisite aged Scotch whiskies, and decorated by Garrard, jewelers to the crown, Tribute to Honour pays tribute to the honors of Scotland.
The weekend itself is a whirlwind of luxury activity, from afternoon tea at Claridges to accommodations at The Shard. Enjoy private visits to Garrard, jeweler to the crown, a famed “62 gun salute” in honor of the birthday of HRH the Prince of Wales, a private lunch in the Tower of London, dinner at The Little Banqueting House in Hampton Court palace, exclusive tastings and more.
The price of this exclusive bottle – a cool $240k! The weekend itself runs about $33,000, but it’s an invite-only affair. That said, these costs aren’t just for hedonistic pleasure – the funds will go to Sentebale, a charity supported by Prince Harry that provides healthcare and education to vulnerable children in Lesotho in southern Africa, those whom have been affected by HIV/AIDS and extreme poverty.
