Royal Salute, has unveiled an all-new 21 Year Old Polo Edition with a more delicately flavoured whisky, designed to be enjoyed during the day and the ideal accompaniment to sophisticated sporting occasions such as polo.

The new blend has been developed by Royal Salute's Director of Blending Sandy Hyslop and is endorsed by Royal Salute Polo Ambassador, Malcolm Borwick, as a celebration of the brand's longstanding affinity with polo and its lifestyle. *

It is presented in a limited edition box signed by Malcolm, a Royal Salute ambassador of more than six years, and features his widely recognised red helmet.  The new Scotch whisky is housed in Royal Salute's iconic hand-crafted porcelain flagons with a distinct polo theme, unique to the limited edition expression. 

''Polo is a noble game of honour, skill, integrity and respect ' all values inherent in Royal Salute. We wanted to continue to celebrate the iconic pairing of our 'King of Whisky' with the 'Sport of Kings', and this new Polo Edition does just that in a more delicate tasting blend ideal for outdoor, daytime enjoyment. We're thrilled to bring it to whisky aficionados around the world.'  Royal Salute Brand Director, Peter Moore

Brighter in texture and tone with notes of honeydew melon, berry jam and creamy toffee, this new expression has been developed from a combination of fragrant grains and fruity malt whiskies for a smooth and sophisticated blended whisky, perfect for basking in the sunshine and outdoor entertaining.
