Royal Salute has announced the launch of a new limited-edition blended malt whisky: “The House of Quinn by Richard Quinn”.
The blended malt whisky is the second release in Royal Salute’s Couture Collection, a line of collectable whiskies celebrating creativity in fashion, and marks an extended collaboration with British designer Richard Quinn.
From the 200-strong decanter collection, 40 bottles will be available through travel retail in locations including Heathrow, Tel Aviv, Dubai and Hainan from April 2022.
Created by Royal Salute master blender Sandy Hyslop, the new blend combines rare whiskies from across Scotland, including some laid down in the year of Richard Quinn’s birth.
“The House of Quinn by Richard Quinn” is presented in individually numbered hand-blown black Dartington crystal decanters. Quinn has created two exclusive floral designs for the bottling: one hand painted onto the decanters; and one printed onto the silk pocket squares included with each bottling.
Liya Zhang, vice president of marketing at Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail (PR GTR), said: “There is an undeniable sense of excitement as travel rebounds following the Covid-19 pandemic and shoppers return to airports. As part of this, we are seeing a clear premiumisation trend in the channel, as consuemrs relish the renewed opportunity to browse highly exclusive and collectable items.
“This new release is a striking combination of artistry and innovation, and we are delighted to be able to bring this luxurious product to global travellers.”
