Devon based Dartington Crystal has teamed up with Scotch whisky brand, Royal Salute, to produce stunning, hand-crafted decanters for the brand's most prestigious blend - Royal Salute 62 Gun Salute.
Working exclusively with Royal Salute, Dartington Crystal - the last surviving volume glass makers in the UK - makes each exquisite decanter by hand at its workshops in Torrington. Using the finest midnight blue crystal, each piece is decorated with 18 carat gold and crowned with a cut crystal stopper.
Neil Hughes, managing director for Dartington Crystal commented, ''It is a pleasure to be working with Royal Salute whose name is as synonymous with craftsmanship and quality as our own. To fulfill the exacting and superior requirements of such a prestigious brand is testament to the unique hand-crafting skills we have ourselves nurtured and developed for more than 40 years.
"It has been some time since a British crystal company has worked with such an internationally renowned brand, so I feel proud we have been able to keep the operation entirely UK based, especially given that the product is aimed primarily at the Asian market."
Royal Salute 62 Gun Salute will retail for the duty free price of US$2,200.
