INDIA. Pernod Ricard Global Travel Retail has released the Delhi limited-edition packaging design for the Royal Salute 25 Year Old blend with Delhi Duty Free at Indira Gandhi International Airport. It is now exclusively available at Delhi Duty Free.
The aged expression is a tribute to the colourful Indian city and features illustrations of popular landmarks including the Taj Mahal, as well as elephants, sapphires and peacocks.
The 25 Year Old whisky is housed in a specially crafted flagon adorned with gold detailing and topped with a jewel-like stopper.
The liquid, which is aged for a minimum of 25 years, expertly combines the finest blends to create a distinct flavour.
