World famous whisky maker Dewar’s has launched their special edition Legacy Collection in India. The Dewar’s Legacy Collection 1893 is now available at the Delhi International Airport duty-free shop located at Terminal 3. The Legacy Collection 1893 is the first of three outstanding whiskies to release from the collection. The 1893 edition commemorates the 120th year of John Dewar & Sons receiving the first Royal Warrant by Queen Victoria.
A blend of 20 exceptional malt and grain whiskies, they all have sourced from rare and long-aged casks from Aberfeldy and Royal Brackla distilleries. The double-aged whiskies have been aged in the same casks for an additional year allowing it to evolve, mellow and harmonize into its final smooth blend. In the final preparation, the blend is being mixed with rare Royal Brackla single malt to make the 1893 edition.
The blend is presented in an exquisitely designed and decorated hand-blown crystal decanter with silverware made with exquisite details in 22 karat gold highlights. The inspiration for the decanter design and decorative art was drawn from the Scottish ceremonial dagger, dirk. Other decanter details feature the traditional thistle with nine sapphires, inspired by the Stuart Sapphire which was also the centerpiece of 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 2 editions of The Legacy Collection, 1899 celebrating the double-aging techniques of Dewar’s blends and 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 was released with a price tag of $3,888.
