The travel retail arm of Bacardi has teamed up with DFS Singapore for the global premiere of The Royal Brackla 35 Year Old Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
The limited edition of just 100 bottles (70cl) is being premiered at Singapore Changi Airport to engage the highly affluent whisky connoisseurs with an elevated drinking experience.
The rich, complex and luxuriously smooth signature character of the whisky is complemented by the delicate oak tones imbued by the finishing in sherry casks. Each bottle is etched with the commemorative dates ‘1812-2012’ and individually numbered in the limited edition of 100.
Retailing at $15,000, the rare ultra-premium expression marks the 200th anniversary of the founding of The Royal Brackla Distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1812 by Captain William Fraser, The Royal Brackla enjoys the unique historical distinction of being the first Scotch Whisky to be granted a royal warrant. Bestowed by King William IV, it came to be known as ‘the King’s own whisky’ and ‘the drink divine’.
To celebrate this honor, both the bottle and the luxurious presentation box each carry the The Royal Brackla master crest, inspired by King William IV’s monogram.
The bottle design takes inspiration from the symbols of the royalty: the crown holding the bottle; the orb represented by the sphere of the bottle; and the scepter, symbolized by the crystal stopper. The crest and filigree pattern on the crown are inspired by the emblem and detailing of the swords awarded to the king’s officers. This is carried trough to the braided pillars of the burgundy presentation box, created in the style of a sword grip.
The Royal Brackla is available now at DFS stores at Singapore Changi Airport.
