Royal Salute adds to iconic Flask Collection with exceptional 28 Year Old Kew Palace Edition

Category:

The ‘King of Whisky’, Royal Salute, has unveiled the exquisite new 28 Year Old Kew Palace Edition, the latest in its annual Flask Collection. The majestic rich, round and silky blend is the result of an exciting, first-time collaboration between Royal Salute’s Director of Blending, Sandy Hyslop, and esteemed perfumer Barnabé Fillion, and is inspired by the magnificent Kew Palace and the magic of its iconic Kitchen Garden.

Bringing together Sandy’s unrivalled knowledge of Royal Salute with Barnabe’s esteemed artistic acumen, the 28 Year Old Kew Palace Edition balances Royal Salute’s signature style with super rich fruits, scented flora and aromatic leaves from the Kitchen Garden, resulting in the ultimate sensory experience that pushes the boundaries of modern blending. The two worked together, nosing countless whiskies in Hyslop’s blending room in Scotland, to capture their interpretation of the lush flora of the Kitchen Garden, while staying true to Royal Salute’s signature style.

Royal Salute Director of Blending, Sandy Hyslop, said: “Working with Barnabe on the Kew Palace Edition was great as we both brought our unique skillsets to embark on what became a true journey of the senses. And what better backdrop for such a feat than the magnificent Kew Palace and its lush kitchen garden?

The Kew Palace Edition follows the launch of the Royal Salute 30 Year Old Flask Edition last year, and this next iteration in the collector’s series again offers a disruptive take on traditional British drinking traditions. The perfect companion for whisky aficionados on the move, the set includes a bespoke green porcelain flagon and exquisite flask, alongside a pouring funnel and wooden serving tray.

It pays homage to London’s iconic Kew Palace, one of Historic Royal Palaces’ most charming royal residences, as part of Royal Salute’s longstanding support of the independent charity created to preserve and protect great British icons. Royal Salute Marketing Director, Mathieu Deslandes, said: “We’re proud to continue supporting our long-time charity partner, Historic Royal Palaces, with a limited edition inspired by Kew Palace. The charity does amazing work preserving and protecting historic royal residences to keep their story alive for generations to come, which is exactly what we strive to do with our whisky, so it’s a fitting partnership and we’re thrilled to play our part honouring a true British icon in this unique and special way. ”

Royal Salute’s Creative Advisor and Brand Ambassador, Barnabé Fillion, added: “It was a privilege to work with Sandy on this exquisite blend and together we created a whisky like no other – a wonderful fusion of Royal Salute tradition and the fantastic sensory experience of walking through Kew Palace’s iconic Kitchen Garden. It’s the perfect blend to enjoy in the rich surroundings of the outdoors and I’m excited that the stunning porcelain flask makes this possible.
