Craft Irish Whiskey Co., Ireland-based distiller has teamed up with jewellery firm ‘House of Fabergé’ to create a limited edition luxury whiskey set. Christened ‘The Emerald Isle Collection’, the 7-piece luxury set comes with two bottles of 30-year-old single malt Irish whiskey. According to the brand, this ultra-rare spirit is the oldest triple-distilled Irish whiskey in the world. Besides that, the whiskey set will feature a Celtic Egg and a gold timepiece exclusively created by Fabergé.
Paying homage to ‘The Seven Wonders of Ireland’, the collection aims to bring together the strong heritage of both the brands. The two bottles of the 30-year-old Emerald Isle’s malt Irish whiskey is the most prolific item of the bespoke whiskey set. The spirit from Craft Irish Whiskey Co. has been aged in American oak casks that once contained bourbon. Finally, the whiskey is finished in a single 40-L Pedro Ximénez Sherry barrel.
Along with the whiskey, the custom set comes with a Celtic Egg which is handcrafted by Fabergé enamel workmaster Dr. Marcus Mohr. The Eggs are created from 18k yellow gold and are decorated with a diamond Celtic knot that houses a unique gemstone in every set. Furthermore, the collection also comes with a Fabergé Altruist timepiece which is finished in 18k rose gold. It is inspired by one of the Seven Wonders of Ireland and is handcrafted by Fabergé workmaster André Martinez.
Other luxury items of ‘The Emerald Isle Collection’ includes a humidor with two Cohiba Siglo VI Grand Reserva cigars and a gold-plated cigar cutter. Besides that, it has a gold-plated water pipette as well. Not only that, you’ll find a hip flask with a sample of the Emerald Isle whiskey and obsidian whiskey stones too. It comes with an Irish spring water filled carafe also. Interestingly, the water is sourced from the same region as the whiskey.
The limited edition luxury whiskey set from Craft Irish Whiskey Co. and Fabergé was auctioned at a private event yesterday. The starting price was reserved at $2 million. The proceeds from the sale were donated to charity.
