Royal Salute has just unveiled this year’s release in its annual Polo Collection: Royal Salute 21 Year Old Beach Polo Edition.
The release celebrates the game of polo, dubbed the “Sport of Kings”. It therefore seems apt that Royal Salute, a whisky with regal beginnings, continues to honour the sport with this second release of its Polo Collection. The first bottles of Royal Salute were launched to celebrate the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II and the whisky’s name is drawn from the 21 Gun Salute.
Royal Salute’s Beach Polo Edition has been crafted by Royal Salute Director of Blending Sandy Hyslop and its character is said by Royal Salute to offer “soft peat tones” and a “smoky flavour”.
The packaging features the signature and red helmet of long-time Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador and former captain of the England Polo Team, Malcolm Borwick. The striking porcelain flagon’s shade of blue is designed to bring to mind the blue skies and sea, which are typical backdrops in beach polo tournaments.
Originally launched as a travel retail exclusive, the Royal Salute 21 Year Old Beach Polo Edition is now available from select retailers from around the world for a recommended retail price of US$140.
