Royal Salute — Time Series II Art Direction
Royal Salute — Time Series II
Created by the oldest working distillery in Strathisla, Scotland, as a gift to Queen Elizabeth II on her Coronation in 1952, Royal Salute is renowned for its exceptional blended whisky, aged over 21 years and upwards.
The Times Series is the pinnacle of their whisky collection, with an aged statement of 51 years for the second edition in the series. Each of the editions are from a single barrel and are available in an extremely limited edition of approximately 100 bottles. The whisky is presented in a hand carved, layered, wooden box, each of the five layers representing a decade of the ageing process, and contained in a crystal decanter, hand blown and cut by Dartington Crystal.
To express this attention to detail at every stage, we took inspiration from the art and craft behind the ageing and blending processes, and the beauty of the decanter and gift box, focusing on details of the individual elements which combine to reveal the final product.
