Royal Salute was created in 1953 as a tribute to the British monarchy. Entrepreneur Sam Bronfman loved royalty and wanted to create an extraordinary Scotch whisky fit for a queen. And, thatŐs exactly what he did with Royal Salute, by selecting some of the rarest Scotch whiskies in the world and blending them to create a luxurious, distinctive spirit. The legacy of his tribute is just as powerful today as Royal Salute continues to celebrate the extraordinary through momentous whiskies and the occasions that call for them to be enjoyed. And, though it remains steeped in tradition, it perfectly balances modern needs by pushing the art of blending into new, creative and ambitious forms.
