The Queen’s Jubilee
Scotch whisky brand Royal Salute has released a limited edition collection to celebrate the reign of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Royal Salute Platinum Jubilee Edition blends traditionalism and modernity, and is inspired by the vibrant and joyous style of Her Majesty. The Queen’s mastery of the hidden language of costume has been honed throughout her reign and her use of brooches to show thoughtfulness and empathy. To honour her seven decades on the throne, Royal Salute was inspired by seven iconic brooches from Her Majesty’s personal collection, the designs of which have been engraved on seven different decanters and box designs, with a colour palette reflective of her famous wardrobe.
