British illustrator Brett Ryder brought his vivid imagination to life through this opulent mixture of collage, drawing, photography and photoshop. Besides winning the V&A illustration Award in the publicized category for this work ‘Looking for the next fix’, his artwork has been used for the packaging of twenty plus varieties of Dr. Stuart’s herbal teas, and print advertising campaigns for Nestea Iced Tea, the Affordable Art Fair, Johnnie Walker, Coca-Cola and Barclays.
The Signature Blend whisky is a classic, unchanged since 1953, with a flavour and fragrance that will make your heart sing. A celebration to live long in the memory, Royal Salute was created to mark the coronation of HM Queen Elizabeth II. There’s history in each measure, a royal tradition that’s British to the core.
Colour: Dark rich gold
Aroma: Rich, fruity aromas and sweet fragrance of autumn flowers. Powerful aromas of sweet pears and citrus fruits are balanced with the full fragrance of autumn flowers. Elegant aromas of sweet vanilla and a dry oakiness are enhanced with subtle notes of sherry and smoke.
Palate: Full, deep fruity flavours with a subtle smokiness. The first taste of Royal Salute brings the subtleties of the nose to life. Sumptuous sweet orange marmalade flavours infused with fresh pears burst across the tongue. The second taste brings in a rich medley of spices and a nuttiness of hazelnuts that have a mouth-filling intensity and then the final warmth from hints of masculine smokiness.
