Tribute to Honour' is so rare that only one man in the world has tasted it – creator and Master Blender, Colin Scott. To mark his 21 years of expertise in blending, just 21 bottles have been created.

The bottle

Each of the 21 bottles is individually numbered. The black porcelain flagon was created by Revol, renowned maker of the finest French porcelain, and crafted from the purest clay from New Zealand's North Island.

The scotch

The first Royal Salute whisky was created in 1953 for the coronation, and since that time has been enthroned as a Scotch of great distinction – the only one in the world that requires a minimum barrel age of 21 years.
