Today for our Luxuria Lifestyle readers, we have a very special gift for the Christmas holidays. Royal Salute released their 21-year-old blended Scotch whisky in this gorgeous edition, designed by Angela Groundwater. This festive pack comes beautifully boxed in wallpaper that reminds us of The Regent’s Banquet. An exquisite dinner organised by The Prince Regent – later George IV of England.

On January 1817, George requested the greatest (and most expensive) chef in the world, Marie-Antoine Carême, to arrange a fine and extravagant banquet in honour of the visiting Grand Duke Nicholas of Russia. Carême had previously cooked for Napoleon, the Rothschilds and the Tsar. But on that cold night in 1817, Carême exceeded all his previous achievements – creating 127 dishes.

The gift set itself features a bottle of Royal Salute 21 Year Old whisky. Our tasting notes describe a deep and golden orangey colour infused with rich and fruity aromas that enhances the Christmas holiday. We could taste the hints of hazelnuts and a warmth and subtly smokiness.

With a great past and a story to be told this gift pack will make an amazing present for those appreciating whisky at it’s finest. Available for a limited time only, the Royal Salute Regent’s Banquet Festive Give Pack can be purchased now at Harvey Nichols and globally Duty Free.
