The ‘King of Whisky’ Royal Salute, continues to celebrate the harmony between the Sport of Kings and exceptional Scotch whisky, this month unveiling the latest in its annual Polo Collection: Royal Salute 21 Year Old Beach Polo Edition.
Inspired by the lingering bonfires, evocative salty winds and warm seaside air synonymous with the sport, the limited edition has been expertly crafted by Royal Salute Director of Blending Sandy Hyslop.
The result is an outstanding new expression that features a tantalising smoky flavour with soft peaty tones, rich fruits and sweet honey.
It is the second in Royal Salute’s annual Polo Collection and follows last year’s inaugural 21 Year Old Polo Edition. Like its predecessor, the Beach Polo Edition is endorsed by long-time Royal Salute World Polo Ambassador and former captain of the England Polo Team, Malcolm Borwick, with his signature and iconic red helmet featured on the packaging.
The porcelain flagon is a striking shade of deep blue, designed to evoke typical beach polo tournament backdrop of blue skies and sea.
Royal Salute has a longstanding affinity with polo; we share values with the noble game of honour, skill and integrity, and are proud to support more than 10 international tournaments annually.
Beach polo embodies all the qualities of the traditional sport which is why it’s a natural fit for our brand, however, it is slightly more playful fun, which is an exciting space for us to be playing in.
We’re thrilled add another exceptional expression to our Polo Collection, and our Director of Blending Sandy Hyslop has done a remarkable job in creating something new and different, that still has all the prestigious hallmarks of Royal Salute.
– Mathieu Deslandes: Royal Salute Marketing Director

Royal Salute 21 Year Old Beach Polo Edition Tasting notes
This new Royal Salute whisky has a slightly smoky flavour and peaty tones with a long, luxurious finish.
Rich, sweet, fruity notes of poached pears, vanilla syrup, salted caramel and runny honey, perfectly balanced with soft, peat smoke.
A burst of sweet bonfire smoke followed quickly by a medley of ripe, soft fruits and species including apricot jam, candied lemons, nutmeg and oak.
Long and tantalisingly smoky.
