Royal Salute 32 Year Old Union of the Crowns pays tribute to the events of 1603, when King James VI fused three mighty kingdoms to create the modern British Monarchy. Reflecting the significance of this historical event, the rare single malts in Royal Salute 32 Year Old Union of the Crowns also show the power of unity, combining precious whiskies to create a timeless experience that can boast to be greater than the sum of its parts.
Exceptional whiskies aged for over 32 years have been hand-selected from some of the best distilleries in Scotland, such as: Tormore which lends its distinctive creamy texture; the characteristically fruity Glen Keith; Longmorn, which imparts a sweet and generous flavour; addition to long-since closed distilleries, Lochside and Caperdonich. The final expression offers a rich and fruity nose and tasting notes of soft caramel toffee, dark chocolate and orange with a touch of ginger cake.
Reflecting the rare liquid within, Royal Salute 32 Year Old Union of the Crowns is presented in an elegant porcelain flagon, made from the purest clay, water and tempered fire. The flagon, which takes ten days to make at the hands of highly skilled craftsmen, is embossed with a distinguished hand-hammered silver plaque, while a black stone set on a silver crown tops the bottle. Each bottle is unique, with the glaze giving every flagon an individual patina, the result of a secret firing process. The story of the Union of the Crowns is brought elegantly to life through the flagon’s long neck, which is decorated with a rose, a thistle and a shamrock.
