The Royal Salute 21 Year Old Lost Blend was meticulously crafted combining scarce whiskies from distilleries no longer in production, together with a selection of exceptional malt and grain Scotch whiskies. These closed distilleries are often referred to as 'lost distilleries'. Royal Salute's Master Blender, Sandy Hyslop hand selected only the most compelling liquids from his collection of casks to create this rare expression.
Housed in a beautifully crafted porcelain flagon, this irreplaceable blend features the 'lost' Imperial Distillery at its heart. Named in honour of the British monarchy, the distillery was created in the same year as Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee and was topped with a gilded cast iron crown in tribute to the event.
"Reminiscent of the signature Royal Salute 21 year old style, The Lost Blend inherits the bolder profile of the perfectly peated Caperdonich malt, resulting in a harmonious smoky whisky with notes of rich fruits and touches of spice. It is a fitting tribute to the gone, but not forgotten greats." - Sandy Hyslop.

Royal Salute was created to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 and was named after the 21 gun salute fired from the Tower of London for royal celebrations. The Tower of London has a colourful history including being home to a collection of exotic animals. Free to roam the Tower's grounds for more than siz hundred years, these animals were presented by monarchs around the world and considered to be the ultimate regal gift.
