Royal Salute's Tribute to Honour

A bottle of scotch so expensive you'll probably never taste it

Crafted by Royal Salute as a liquid homage to the oldest crown jewels in the British Isles—The Honours of Scotland—Tribute to Honour is a blend of some of Chivas Brothers' oldest and finest whiskey in an over-the-top package.

To create the Tribute, Master Blender Colin Scott selected a few casks of very well-aged whisky, all at least 45 years old. Individually, they're probably among the best you'll ever enjoy; blended, they achieve an even higher intensity.

A liquid this rare deserves more than a plastic flask, so they commissioned Garrard, "the world's oldest jewelers," to craft a bottle made from black porcelain, adorned with 413 flawless black and white diamonds, as well as 22 carats of other gemstones, set in gold and silver.

Alas, luxury this rare—only 21 numbered bottles were created—comes at a price. The bottles run $200,000 a piece. Contact Giaia [dot] Rener [at] pernot-ricard [dot] com for more information.
