Luxury blended Scotch whiskey brand Dewar’s recently released its 1893 edition Legacy Collection. Here’s what makes it so special. The collection – a blend of 20 exceptional malt and grain whiskies are sourced from rare and long-aged casks from Aberfeldy and Royal Brackla distilleries of Scotland. The double-aged whiskeys have been aged in the same casks for an additional year allowing it to evolve, mellow and harmonise into its final smooth blend. In the final preparation, blend is being mixed with rare Royal Brackla single malt to make the 1893 edition.
The limited edition is presented in an exquisitely designed and decorated hand-blown crystal decanter with silverware made with exquisite details in 22 karat gold highlights. The decanter, inspired by the Scottish ceremonial dagger – dirk, also features the traditional thistle with nine sapphires, inspired by the Stuart Sapphire which was also the centerpiece in Queen Victoria’s State Crown. The custom made burr walnut and gold metal box of the decanter displays some of the many prestigious awards won by Dewar’s.
The next two editions of The Legacy Collection, the 1899 celebrating the double-ageing techniques of Dewar’s blends and the 1902 celebrating Tommy Dewar’s knighthood, will also be released in limited editions of 1,000 bottles each. The 1,000 individually numbered bottles of The Legacy Collection 1893 is available exclusively in DFS stores in New Delhi; price: $3,900 (approximately Rs. 2,42,620).
Perfect for those who fancy living the royal lifestyle!
