Royal Salute 25 Year Old Taiwan Edition

Royal Salute 25 Year Old Taiwan Edition is inspired by the beauty of the country.

Pernod Ricard Travel Retail has unveiled a Taiwan-exclusive, limited edition packaging design for its Royal Salute 25 Year Old expression released to mark the New Year.

Available only from Duty Free Taipei Taoyuan Airport from November 2023, the blended Scotch bottling design has been inspired by the “beauty of Taiwan”.

Its design is said to capture the “beauty, energy, and rich traditions” of the country, while celebrating the heritage of the Royal Salute brand. 

Illustrations include dragon and tiger pagodas, Taiwan’s national flower the plum blossom, and the Chinese dragon. 

The whisky itself is presented in a flagon with gold detailing topped with a jewel-like stopper. 

Royal Salute 25-Year-Old Taiwan Edition is available now priced at $9,360 NTD.

“We are thrilled to present this stunning new limited edition, exclusively for travellers visiting Taiwan, and thank our partners at Taoyuan Airport for helping us to bring the launch to life in a luxury setting,” said Simon van Moppes, Managing Director, North Asia Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail. 

“We continue to offer rare and collectable items in key travel retail locations, elevating and differentiating the retail offer and experience, whilst ultimately delivering value and exclusivity to our travellers.”

 Liya Zhang, VP of Marketing, Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail, added: “The Taiwan Edition is bursting with the magnetic beauty and energy of Taiwan, and Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail is proud to have worked collaboratively with Taipei Duty Free to bring this limited-edition to market. 

“We’re confident that this exclusive release, which perfectly embodies the culture and heritage of the country, will appeal to both whisky collectors and travelling shoppers looking for the perfect gift for friends, family and loved ones this holiday season.”

Last month Royal Salute partnered with fashion designer Richard Quinn to release Royal Salute 21 Year Old Richard Quinn Edition II, described as an “exceptional” blended Scotch.
