Our Kingdom

Inspired by a passion for tradition, born as a tribute to a queen,
crafted with a desire for perfection. Step into a world of
enchantment and wonder, and discover the unique history of
Royal Salute and inspiring people who make it.

In 1953, the young Princess Elizabeth ascended the throne. The occasion called for a tribute fit for a queen and so an exquisite blend was created using whisky from Strathisla, the oldest working distillery in the Scottish Highlands.

It was given the name Royal Salute – after the famous 21-gun-salute – and so began the story of a remarkable whisky. It was given the name Royal Salute – after the famous 21-gun-salute – and so began the story of a remarkable whisky.
