Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Whiskey.

Monarchists with deep pockets and a fine palate for scotch could toast to the queen with her very own blended spirit.  Distiller John Walker & Sons will be bottling 60 crystal decanters of Diamond Jubilee Blended Scotch Whisky to mark the Queen‘s 60 years on the throne next year.  The grain and malt whiskies have been maturing in a marrying cask of English oak from the Queen’s Sandringham Estate since 1952.  The 60 crystal decanters will be sold for a pretty pence at £100,000 at a private sale by invitation only.  All profits from the sale will be donated to the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, with a guarantee of £1 million. The trust offers scholarships and mentorship programs to support traditional craftsmanship.  The amber liquor will be presented in lead crystal decanter adorned with a Britannia silver collar, featuring a half-carat diamond set by hand, and a numbered seal.  It also comes with a pair of hand-engraved lead crystal glasses and a leather-bound, hand-embellished artifact book.  Sixty bottles of the Diamond Jubilee by John Walker & Sons will be bottled on February 6, 2012, exactly 60 years to the day since the Queen took to the throne.
