The most anticipated events of 2012 include the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II. For this very special celebration, numerous luxury companies have prepared different products and services in honor of the Queen’s 60 years of reign. One such product is the Diamond Jubilee whisky by John Walker & Sons, Scotch Whisky Distillers By Appointment to Her Majesty The Queen.

Using rare malt and Scotch Whiskies that date back to 1952 (the year of the Queen’s coronation), the distillers created a unique blend for this very special event. The whisky comes in diamond-shaped Baccarat crystal decanters, whose production was limited to a very small number: only 60 bottles, plus a special one crafted for the Queen herself. The filling was overseen by David Gates, Grantee of John Walker & Sons’ Royal Warrant.

Each bottle is sustained in an upright position by six radial legs, with each one representing a decade of Her Majesty’s reign. For an impeccable presentation, the decanters will be sold in a luxe chest crafted by NEJ Stevenson cabinet makers. The woods used for the chest are Caledonian pine from the Queen’s Balmoral Estate and oak from Sandringham.

The anniversary decanters will sell for $160,000 each, and profits from the sales will be donated to the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust (QEST). Regardless of how many bottles will be sold, the trust is guaranteed to receive $1.6 million.
