In honor of the recent wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Royal Salute has created the Royal Salute Royal Wedding Edition is a blended Scotch made specifically for the royal celebration.

The Royal Salute Wedding Edition was bottled at 54.5% alcohol by volume [109 proof] and is the first time Royal Salute has created a release matured entirely in American oak barrels – in deference to the American bride – and is blended using a mix of 33 and 36 year old whiskies, in honor of their ages.

Distilleries used for the Royal Salute Royal Wedding Edition include Glen Keith, Longmorn, Strathisla, Alt A Bhainne, Braeval single malts, Strathclyde grain whisky, as well as whisky from the Caperdonich distillery that closed in 2002- with the oldest whisky in the blend a 55-year-old.

Only 70 decanters – 71 if you count the decanter sent to the royal family – are available for purchase [$10,000 for mere peasants] with each of the 70 hand-blown decanters made by Dartington Crystal, individually numbered and displayed in a hand-crafted American Oak box, with images of daffodils to represent Harry’s title as Prince Henry of Wales, and California poppies in tribute to Markle’s Los Angeles origins.
