Chivas Brothers is considered Scotch whisky royalty, so it seems fitting that the whisky and gin maker has created a new blend in homage to The Honours of Scotland, the oldest crown jewels on the British Isles.

The blend is an addition to the company’s Royal Salute whisky range, and has been sampled only by its creator, Master Blender Colin Scott. Just 21 bottles of what is being called Tribute to Honour have been created, an homage to mark Scott’s 21 years of service.

The blend’s whiskies -- all at least 45 years old -- were selected from the Royal Salute Vault at the Strathisla distillery in northeast Scotland. They are presented in a bottle, dressed in diamonds and gold from the Garrard jewellery brand.

Each flagon of Royal Salute Tribute to Honour will be available beginning in September 2011. They are individually numbered and priced at £124,000 (US$200,000).
