Royal Salute drops new expression in its fashion collection, co-created with iconic British designer, Richard Quinn


Royal Salute, the master of exceptionally aged Scotch whisky, has expanded its Fashion Collection, partnering for the second year with celebrated star of British fashion and long-standing brand collaborator, Richard Quinn. The all-new limited edition, Royal Salute 21 Year Old Richard Quinn Edition II, perfectly marries cutting-edge creativity in fashion and expert luxury Scotch whisky blending, making it a true collectable.

The latest Fashion Collection expression catapults the collaboration to new creative heights with Royal Salute Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop, and Richard Quinn co-crafting the exquisite new blend together in Strathisla Distillery, in Speyside, Scotland, where the most precious Royal Salute whiskies are safeguarded. Through meticulous testing and creative development, the pair has created an exceptional new Scotch with a twist, that brings out depth and maturity, and reflects the growing relationship between Royal Salute and the acclaimed British designer.

The Royal Salute 21 Year Old Richard Quinn Edition II marries the finest hand-selected Scotch whiskies, including some from Braeval, Strathisla and Caperdonich, and all matured for a minimum of 21 years, resulting in a bespoke blend with rich fruity notes, elevated with hints of spice and gentle smoky characteristics, making it wonderfully balanced and opulent.

The exclusive blend is housed in Royal Salute’s signature flagon, which has been adorned with three striking designs by Richard Quinn, each showcasing his characteristic bold style and love of colliding patterns. While one depicts a print reflective of some of his most famous work with rose petals and white polka dots against a black backdrop, another features a striking white daisy against a forest green background. Completing the trio and available exclusively in Global Travel Retail, the final floral pattern uses vibrant purple, yellow and green shades against a pristine white background.

Speaking of his ongoing collaboration with Royal Salute, Richard Quinn said:

“I get inspired and motivated by someone who has something new to say, who brings a new perspective, or pushes boundaries to create something new and Sandy Hyslop does this in incredible fashion when it comes to crafting outstanding Scotch. Spending time with him at Strathisla Distillery was a stand-out highlight for me and the creative journey we’ve been on together has been incredible. We both brought a really clear vision to the table, and seeing these collide, merge and build into the finished edition was a thrill to be a part of. Extending the collaboration with Royal Salute was a no-brainer for me, and I love the idea that our collaborative effort will find its way into the hands of appreciators of craft across the world.”

The Royal Salute 21 Year Old Richard Quinn Edition II will be released on 2nd October 2023, and will be available at select luxury retailers worldwide, including at at an RRP of $222 USD.
