The Richard Quinn Edition

In the first edition of a striking new collection celebrating the world of CoutureRoyal Salute is proud to collaborate with a rising star of British fashion, Richard Quinn.  

The Royal Salute 21-Year-Old Richard Quinn Edition comprises an elegant floral blend, in homage to the bold and colourful designs of Richard Quinn. 

CRAFTSMANSHIP

Combining masterful blending and daring design, the 21-Year-Old Richard Quinn edition brings together two worlds of craft.

In a bold statement of style and elegance, the blend is housed in a re-imagined porcelain flagon, available in black and white. The flagon is embellished with a petals and thorns motif, personally designed by Richard Quinn. The whisky was fashioned by Royal Salute Master Blender Sandy Hyslop using Richard Quinn as its core inspiration – and offers elegant floral notes with a rich and indulgent finish.
