Royal Salute 21 year old is the original reference in the Royal Salute range - each ceramic flagon (bottle) is handcrafted over six days by master porcelain makers, crafted in red (rubies), green (emeralds) or blue (sapphires) to mirror the jewels in the Queen's crown. The flagon is adorned with the image of Robert The Bruce, Scotland's hero-warrior king. Each flagon is cloaked in a velvet, sporran like pouch, evoking Scottish heritage and association with royalty when unveiled.
