Pernod Ricard unveils Royal Salute Age Collection

10 November, 2015

Pernod Ricard’s Royal Salute has unveiled ten blends with the youngest containing whiskies 21 years or older and the oldest containing whiskies at least 30 years old.

The Age Collection is designed to give whisky collectors a ‘unique taste of the passage of time and its effects on whisky’.

Hand blended by Royal Salute’s master blending team, The Age Collection ascends in age year by year, with each possessing a ‘unique story’.

Vadim Grigorian, Royal Salute global brand director, said: “The Age Collection combines timeless tradition with contemporary understanding to create a celebration of longevity in the year Queen Elizabeth becomes Britain’s longest serving monarch. As sources of the naturally preserved material are very limited, this rare oak is the perfect way to display the time and craft behind these blends. The Age Collection unites time, craft and quality; all values encapsulated by Royal Salute.”

The Age Collection will be produced in a limited edition of 21 sets, with each retailing at a recommended price of $40,000.
